These Mexican Kalems have justly become very popular with exhibitors
6 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A splendid Mexican Kalem. Because of their absolute fidelity to truth, their correct rendering of every detail and the charm of their outdoor settings, these Mexican Kalems have justly become very popular with exhibitors. Their educational value is considerable. Americans have learned more about conditions as they exist in the sister republic through these pictures than through any other medium. There are some very fine and novel features in this particular reel, notably the breaking up of the insurrectos' camp, the call to arms, and the fight between the federals and the insurrectos, which are thrillingly realistic. The correctness of these pictures from a military point of view is surely not the least of their merits. The plot is simple, but pleasing and probable, and the acting is beyond all praise. - The Moving Picture World, May 11, 1912
