Its heroine is very unconvincing
24 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

A bit more care would have made this conventional melodrama a good deal better. The chief difference between it and many others is that, instead of a horse race, it has an automobile race. Its heroine is very unconvincing, and it has no villain. It tries to make a villain of the banker, a realty good sort of fellow, by having him outrageously treated by the girl and also by the hero, to whom he had just promised a loan that he might go on with his engineering work. The hero wins a prize in the race, so doesn't need the loan. In truth, it looks as though the picture was thrown together merely to give pertinence to some views of a motor car race which are only fair. It does neither author nor producer little credit. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
