The plot is misleading
15 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In scenic selections, photography, lighting and direction this two-reel picture really excels. The plot is misleading in many places. It is a love story concerning an American naval officer and a Japanese Geisha girl. The acting of all in the cast is to be commended. This is a meritorious offering in all respects. - The Moving Picture World, April 18, 1914
