The "mystery" is really given away in the first act
22 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This picture is not wholly a failure, although the "mystery" is really given away in the first act and the interest is wholly centered on how the detective is going to fasten the guilt of the murder on the villain and so clear the hero. If it had been made strongly convincing, even this might have done very well; but it has, with a good climax, weak moments. There is action in it all through. - The Moving Picture World, October 4, 1913
