There is no question about the strength of the picture
4 May 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A dramatic picture of more than ordinary power, yet it is such a tragedy that one can scarcely say that one likes it. There are two deaths, one a murder committed in a rage of jealous passion, and the other is the shooting dead of the murderer. A priest is accused of the murder, but because the murderer confessed to him he cannot tell the truth. And the girl, after exonerating the priest, repairs to a convent to expiate her share in the tragedy by service in the church. There is some wildly picturesque scenery, well worth seeing. There is no question about the strength of the picture, nor of the dramatic qualities of the story, of which a well balanced company of sympathetic actors nave made the most. After seeing the film one is almost ready to exclaim that indeed all is vanity and the old preacher who so eloquently deplored its prevalence was correct in his description. - The Moving Picture World, May 14, 1910
