Plentifully supplied with action
30 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-part melodrama written and staged by Henry McRae, and plentifully supplied with action which is about as convincing or unconvincing as that in other offerings of this kind. Such pictures strive to give feeling by their speedy motion that gives no time to think rather than by a skillful arrangement of true, emotion-giving facts. It was taken in Honolulu and has many scenes in an actual army post with plenty of soldiers, which fact helps it not a little. The spy is a friend of the colonel's son and is trying to use the colonel's daughter to further his scheme ot stealing the code book. The girl's fiancé is, of course, custodian of the book. It is acceptably acted and the photography is beautiful. - The Moving Picture World, August 22, 1914
