Not the most skillfully built story
26 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The best story, from the viewpoint of the audience, but not the most skillfully built story. We are sneaking only of today's regular releases. It is an interesting offering, with a good deal of freshness, without anything that can be called at all new. The hero is a diplomatic officer in Washington who has got into debt buying lovely dresses for his wife. The foreign spy tempts him and he nearly falls. The chief difference is that in most pictures of this situation the girl is a princess only by right, while here she is a princess by both right and title. It is both well acted and beautifully photographed. Alice Joyce is the princess. Tom Moore is the hero; his way of showing determination is, in this picture, almost amusing for just one-half second, E.L. Davenport is her father, the king; Naomi Childers, her maid, and E.P. Gibbs. the spy. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
