Storyline

Count Zarka is an unscrupulous nobleman, who entertains a strange hatred toward Prince Roel. Owing to the latter's activity in state affairs, Count Von Bernstein, a foreign ambassador, is anxious to put him out of the way, and Zarka is promised a large sum of money to accomplish this. Zarka intercepts a message the prince sends to Phillipa, in which he tells her that if she loves him she is to wear the red roses sent, and if not she is to wear the spray of white roses. Phillipa is much disturbed after she has worn the white roses and finds that she is overlooked by the prince.

This is accomplished when the prince goes out into the grounds to brood over his disappointment. Zarka, with the aid of his minions, overpowers and imprisons the prince in the former's castle.

A rather dry three reels
30 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The villain of this story acts so foolishly that he loses the resjiect of the spectator, a fatal defect in a character on whose power for ill the whole interest of the tale depends. The picture makes a rather dry three reels and is surely far below the standard set by the Great Northern studio. The story deals with a court intrigue and is furnished with a few stately scenes, some fine uniforms, a pretty heroine, interesting backgrounds for many of its scenes and the trite machinery of hidden doors, unsuspected holes in the floor and other fittings of the kind so often seen of late in the castles of rich villains. - The Moving Picture World, April 4, 1914
