Such a picture appeals exclusively to the intelligent
Lambert Chase, the great detective (Maurice Costello), appears again to unravel a very perplexing case of poisoning. Such a picture appeals exclusively to the intelligent. The situation is first presented blankly. The spectator can see no possible solution. We then see the detective make small discoveries. They are convincing as clews, but they don't lead us anywhere. The producer's skill is shown by the way he keeps every step that the detective makes from suggesting to the spectator what the next steps will be up to the dramatic climax when we are permitted to see the trap set for the murderer and breathlessly watch him fall into it. This offering fulfills all these requirements very well and is deeply interesting. The artist who was suspected of poisoning the model is Mr. James Morrison; the model is Miss Leah Baird; the artist's mother is Miss Rose Tapley, and Mr. George Cooper play the murderer. The author is Mr. B.R. Brookes, the producer is Mr. Van Dyke Brooke. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
