The camera is nearly always too far away from the action
27 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A romantic picture taken in and around Bettws-y-Coed, a village of Wales, and played by an English company. The backgrounds are, of course, new and very acceptable. The story is simple, somewhat melodramatic; but not, as shown, very dramatic, because of some confusion due to the similarity of two of the players when wearing the peculiar tall hat of the country. The camera is nearly always too far away from the action to let us see the faces, and this also seems a pity, for the players are well favored. It was watched closely. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
