Storyline

Lieutenant Dobrino, a rejected suitor to General Zobrinoff's daughter, is in league and conspiracy with the enemies of his country to sell them certain important plans and war documents. To revenge himself for the humiliation of refusal received at the hands of the general's daughter, she causes suspicion for the theft of the plans to fall on his successful rival, Lieutenant Orlof. The general, in due course, discovers, much to his amazement, the loss of the papers, and as prearranged by Dobrinow, suspicion falls upon the innocent Orlof, who, after a brief trial is court-martialed and sentenced to suffer the penalty of death. Friends of Orlof, however, who are confident of his innocence, make every effort to track the real offender, and eventually Lieutenant Dobrinow is suspected. His movements confirm the suspicion. He is followed and arrested in secret conclave with representatives of the enemy. The mistake of Orlof's arrest is soon made clear to General Zodanoff, who instantly ...

Among the three best independent pictures of the week
4 April 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The characters in this picture seem to be Austrian or Servian on the one hand and Turkish on the other. The story is a melodrama, brilliantly acted and laid out with skill; it is also effectively photographed. It's a love story. The traitor, an officer of high rank, sells his country's secrets for money and, as usual, contrives to have the hero condemned to death as the culprit. But the real traitor is noticed slipping away in the darkness and followed. He is caught in the act and after a very brisk engagement with fists and swords he and some of the enemy are captured. The hero is saved as the firing squad is taking aim. The picture has a true military atmosphere; pictures of military life in foreign lands, where nearly every able-bodied man has to serve his term, usually have. It is brisk and exciting. It is among the three best independent pictures of the week. - The Moving Picture World, September 2, 1911
