This plot has all been done before
13 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Robert Leonard appears as a young inventor in this two-reel story. The invention itself is an interesting one; it is an ingenious device for detecting happenings miles away and for exploding gasoline at a distance. The machine itself is used in getting the hero and heroine out of a serious predicament at the close. This story is well constructed and has numerous exciting moments. Ella Hall plays the part of a girl spy in a government office and it is through her efforts that the hero is saved from the conspirators. This plot has all been done before in different ways, but it is entertaining as presented in this number and has several novel incidental features. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
