Some lack of skill noticeable in the writing of the script
This three part offering is not acted with that skill and feeling for character that we expect in pictures with the Great Northern trade mark. There is also some lack of skill noticeable in the writing of the script, especially in its introduction of the story. The story is very fair and the picture is by no means without appeal. It has some excellent circus pictures and, at the end, an accident in which two acrobats, a man and a woman, are severely injured. The man had fallen from a trapeze and was hanging by one foot. The woman, who had once been his partner in an acrobatic sketch in the circus, in trying to rescue him, is hurt by a second fall of both together. This accident clears up the story, proving that the injured acrobat and the man he was jealous of are brothers, who were separated in their youth. - The Moving Picture World, November 1, 1913
