  • The good things that are in this picture are not very well built together, so it fails to get over with the power or to create the suspense that we usually find in offerings by this maker. The chief reason why it fails is because the meaning of the scene where the workman strikes his foreman is not at all clear. He is fired, can get no other work, becomes despondent and makes a suicide pact with his wife to "go out" together which is quite possible, but is so horrible that we don't want to believe and resist it. After the climax, someone in the audience laughed at it. There is some good acting in it and some fine moments. - The Moving Picture World, January 18, 1913
