Lengthens out the suspense in a probable, convincing and semi-humorous way
This picture has a dramatic climax that is fresh enough, but that reminds us of several other Biograph offerings; it is a picture with a struggle between an unarmed man, on one side of a door, and a madman with a pistol, on the other. Its freshness comes from the trouble a tramp, whom he had befriended, has in rescuing him. A policeman seeing this rough looking man climbing in a window, hinders him and lengthens out the suspense in a probable, convincing and semi-humorous way that is very entertaining. There are three chief characters and, for more than half the film, these kept appearing without any definite relationship. The situation might have been stated more quickly. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
