Was not effectively written

An old Colonial legend made into a motion picture. It furnishes some very pretty scenes, but was not effectively written as a story. There is nothing brilliant in the acting and no sense of finality in the costuming. One accident, carelessly left in, will kill the offering for any audience. It happens when one of the players is alighting from her horse. One of these incidents that would pass among cultivated people unnoticed, where we saw it, it brought out such a comment from some fool down in the pit that the manager had to put him out to save his face. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
