A good mystery of a "shivery" sort
14 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A dramatic number, featuring Ben Wilson, Dorothy Phillips and others. Ben Wilson plays the part of an amateur sleuth who unravels the mysterious death of a woman, thrown over a terrace by a man in monk's costume. This is well pictured and presents a good mystery of a "shivery" sort. - The Moving Picture World, April 24, 1915
