| Totally confusing--the print I saw must have been missing something
The version of this film I saw was a lot shorter than how long this film was supposed to be. Some of this could be due to differing cranking speeds--silent films greatly varied on their length due to how fast the camera and projector are hand-cranked. In addition, a lot of very early films exist in several versions--some times because the film was cut apart by movie theaters or distributors and some times simply because the print is so old, only portions remain. Whichever MIGHT be the case with this film, something definitely was missing. That's because I found I really needed to read the summary on IMDb to understand what was occurring in the film--it really isn't evident in the film and there are no inter-title cards in the film to clue you in to what is occurring.

Based on what I saw and the summary, the film itself is pretty silly and old fashioned--with an interesting plot that is almost impossible to believe. Compared to other movies of the time, this one is slightly worse than average and doesn't especially play well almost 100 years later.
