It is not a convincing story
14 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A real Chinaman has a role in this picture; he is "the dangerous foe," a laundryman whom a thug had ill-treated. By chance he is the means, not only of bringing the thug to justice, but of preventing him from doing harm to the child of a judge. These climax scenes take place in the rich home of the judge and in them the two men, thug and chink, are pitted against each other, essentially as in other Biograph burglar pictures. It is not a convincing story nor is there much strong acting in it. The photography is not up to Biograph standard. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
