Uninterrupted suspense
26 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel mystery story, by Wm. B. Courtney, possesses the most essential quality in plays of its class, uninterrupted suspense. The climax is very dramatic, the exterior scenes beautiful, and the acting of John E. Mackin, Anna Nilsson, Robert D. Walker and Harry Millarde uniformly admirable. - The Moving Picture World, May 15, 1915
