A special feature in two parts, written by Dave Smith and produced by Ulysses Davis, featuring Myrtle Gonzales, assisted by the following artists: William Burke, Alfred D. Vosburgh, William S. Smith, George Kunkel, Jack Mower and William Duncan. A drama of love and political intrigue. The theme is not a new one, but it is full of intense and gripping moments. The acting and photography deserves mention. A splendid release. - The Moving Picture World, February 13, 1915
