There are a confusing number of minor characters
8 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

In the main this two-reel offering, written by Gilson Willetts. tells an absorbing story. It concerns the attempted smuggling of two slippers set with $50,000 worth of diamonds. The scenes are laid in a club, on an ocean liner, and in a detective office. There are a confusing number of minor characters, too many club men and too many detectives. But the story moves along pleasingly and the gang is rounded up in an elevator in a satisfactory way. The betting feature could well have been spared, as it served to make the windup of the picture tedious. A pleasing number. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
