Storyline

After the daring and cunning of the American engineer blew up the Amphitheatre with his land mines, saving Kathlyn from the hungry lions, he dragged her from the wreckage to a secluded spot close by, where Ramadai and Pundita were waiting with elephants. So they all are elevated into the howdahs; the mahouts prod the big beasts and then follows a flight through the jungle. Finally in the dawn of the morning, they stop for water. A baboon runs close to the trail, frightening Kathlyn's elephant mount, which runs away. The mahout tries to stop the terrified beast, but he is thrown against a tree, and the elephant continues its frantic pace with Kathlyn, alone. The other members of the entourage pursue her, but the runaway gains so fast that Kathlyn is soon lost to their view in the recesses of the forest.

Hampered by the continually broken story
28 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

Most entertaining is the adventure pictured in this number, especially on account of its strangeness. We cannot deny that this series is making a hit even hampered as it is by the continually broken story; its East Indian scenes give it a better chance than a more ordinary offering could have. Take, for instance, those pyres along the River Ganges with their real human corpses being burned, how they add to the mimic scene later when the heroine is compelled to be "suttee." And after she has escaped, not convincingly, the atmosphere of that ruined temple where the lion prowls about among the broken pillars and the defaced effigies of old gods, adds much to interest in it all. The personality of Kathlyn Williams fits this story perfectly. The photography is commendable. The spectators watched this installment very closely. - The Moving Picture World, February 7, 1914
