A strong tribute to the art of cinematography
12 August 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Founded on the story of Mary Tudor, daughter of Henry VIII of England, who after his death succeeded him to the throne, and in the course of her reign beheaded her favorite, Fabiani. This feature of four reels is a strong tribute to the art of cinematography. It is well cast, splendid in action, costuming, setting and photography. Much could be said at length on the merits of this production. - The Moving Picture World, January 23, 1915
