The play is finely produced
There is one feature of this otherwise most excellent picture which cannot be passed without comment. This is the common perversion of the historical fact perpetrated by the company in representing a white human being perishing at the stake in New England for the alleged crime of witchcraft, instead of on the gallows. The play is finely produced. There is an excellent cast, which includes Miss Stuart, Mr. Francis, Mr. Scheier, Mr. Frazer, Miss Bright and Mr. Wilson. One of the best pieces of work is by Miss Stuart, who, in her portrayal of the woman crazed by grief, is thrillingly realistic. All the participants are deserving of praise. - The Moving Picture World, September 20, 1913
