Rather below the Thanhouser average

A two reel film story, rather below the Thanhouser average in some respects. Important action was omitted at interesting moments, such as the duel scene, and the continental atmosphere was not well suggested. A good full-length view of the Carmania is shown. The performers did not seem to get strongly enough into the feeling of the story, which in itself lacked any great pulling power. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
