Excellently produced
21 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The best thing this picture offers is a very well handled chase of a desperate criminal by two detectives. It ends in his taking refuge in the tank of a locomotive, where he is seen drowned. There is the usual love story connected with it and this has quite a Kalem flavor with its heroine rescued from the slums and now happily married, but living in dread of the criminal who is called "her evil genius." She is set free by his death. It is an excellently produced and very fairly acted melodrama and has many lovely scenes perfectly photographed. - The Moving Picture World, January 31, 1914
