Tells a stirring and dramatic story that is very well known
18 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A masterpiece of coloring, this biblical picture tells a stirring and dramatic story that is very well known. Saul, King of Israel, knows that David is to follow him as king and tries to put him out of the way. Jonathan, Saul's son, loves David and saves his life. David finds Saul asleep in a cave and, instead of killing him, cuts off a portion from his robe. This convinces Saul that David is not conspiring to supplant him. The picture tells this clearly in outline, but the filling in is new and not according to the historical narrative in the Bible. The audience watched it with the closest attention, and seemed greatly pleased with it. It is a very sure feature picture. It has only one very commendable characterization, however; it is that of Saul. He is fine. - The Moving Picture World, April 6, 1912
