The transition from the humble clerk to the man who rules is splendidly carried out
Here is a powerful picture. Leo Delaney, playing a dissolute and discharged government clerk, overhears a conspiracy against the life of the Emperor. He goes to Napoleon and asks that he be sent to meet the conspirators in response to the forged note. The clerk is dressed in the Emperor's uniform. The transition from the humble clerk to the man who rules is splendidly carried out. The decoy is killed. The Emperor follows with a number of soldiers and the conspirators are arrested. There are many strong situations. William Humphrey plays the Emperor and Harry Morey the chief of the conspirators. Dallas Welford is the keeper of the wine shop. William Shea, Harry Northrup and Earle Williams are the other chief actors. "His Life for His Emperor" is a true one-reel feature. - The Moving Picture World, May 31, 1913
