Storyline

Erik, the son of Count Bille, and Eva, the winsome daughter of Lawson, the surveyor on his estate, are lovers. Count Bille is fond of worldly indulgences, but, at the same time, is quietly submissive to his sister, Ulrica, a termagant. The count, prompted by his sister, tries to effect an alliance between his son and Lady Vera Torp, daughter of his friend, but Erik has ideas of his own on the point and shows a marked preference for Eva. Aunt Ulrica observes Erik go off to meet Eva, and sends the count after him on horseback to put an end to their romance.

Notable for its rich staging and its freshly interesting backgrounds
21 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This interesting feature offering in four parts is notable for its rich staging and its freshly interesting backgrounds. The photography, especially of the interiors, spacious and gracefully furnished rooms in a great manor house, is excellent and the picture has, including some fine exteriors, many lovely scenes. The story, with plenty of action and some animated hunt scenes with many horses and dogs is fresh, is brightened by comedy and is itself as a whole light-hearted and refreshing. The acting is all that could be expected, is substantial and satisfying. It has that sense of relief from the ordinary that is natural in offerings made in any foreign country when the story is acceptable; the relief that comes from the far-away backgrounds and buildings. Without being a great picture it is a very good release to entertain and please. - The Moving Picture World, January 31, 1914
