True to the period depicted
31 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A two-reel story of Puritan days, written by Richard V. Spencer. The story contains an odd mixture of scenes similar to those in "The Scarlet Letter" and "A Tale of Two Cities," The sub-title, "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known," is a direct quotation from the latter as it was dramatized and should not have been used without credit. The scenes in this photoplay are true to the period depicted and a good story is thrown on the screen. The tale takes up the Salem witchcraft days in the second reel, the leading woman character being hung as a witch. The photography is very good. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
