Some tremendous situations
28 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A three-part offering, with some tremendous situations that will be effective in their appeal to audiences; for, although the method of arriving at them is not wholly convincing, the producer's art appeals to our emotions and in doing so distracts our attention from the means used. We see this innocent society woman helpless with deep pity, but her weakness is harder to sympathize with, the more because another half hour's struggle would have righted her. This weakness is a bit unpleasant in a picture that does not deal with true life. Maude Fealy is featured in the leading role, with James Cruze as the villain, and both are about as good in their parts as we could ask. There are numerous incidents in it filled with convincing realism and the whole is a credit to its producer. But it is not a story that can be wholly fortunate on the screen. It is harder to make an essentially weak story convincing on the screen than on the stage. - The Moving Picture World, February 7, 1914
