Not quite pleasant enough to be truly entertaining
A four-part offering rather artistically produced and humanly acted, so that there are many fine scenes and pleasing pictures. The story, with much that is far-fetched in it, is not without dignity, inasmuch as it gives a good portrayal of friendship which is at once both convincing and worthy. But it has a gruesome background in the work of the hypnotist devil and his influence on the wife. The effect, as a whole, is not quite pleasant enough to be truly entertaining. The "devil" is the business rival of the hero and has the latter's wife under hypnotic control, forcing her to reveal her husband's business secrets. The husband has a friend, a lawyer, who acts as guardian angel to him. - The Moving Picture World, April 4, 1914
