It chooses a duke and duchess for its hero and heroine
A romantic picture of the French Revolution from the aristocratic viewpoint; it chooses a duke and duchess for its hero and heroine, while its villain is a minion of Robespierre. There are scenes of palace life and of life in the underworld of the Parisian slums. Mr. Chas. Kent is the duke; Julia Swayne Gordon is the duchess; Mr. Delany plays the villain's part; Miss Leah Baird plays the lead in the counterplot; is his low sweetheart who stabs him because of his intrigue to get the beautiful duchess. In one scene, the mob, attacking the duke's palace, gave a decided thrill. It is a good picture; not because of its plot, but because of its characters and good acting. It has good photography. - The Moving Picture World, June 29, 1912
