The action is a little too hurried
28 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A rejected lover tries to break up the girl's engagement with a rival. He succeeds for a time through the aid of an adventuress, but later the adventuress accuses him of a crime she herself committed. The action is a little too hurried, but the scenes are attractive and the photography very good. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
