The producers may well be proud
The third film de luxe in this company's series based upon events in Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables." While this film is complete in itself its connection with the two earlier pictures, "The Galley Slave" and "Fantine," is apparent and it becomes a satisfactory illustration of this portion of the story. Like the others it has numerous dramatic situations, the most impressive of which is the placing of Jean Valjean in the coffin, which is buried. The purchase of Cosette's freedom is interesting, the appearance from the sea, and the recognition by Javert, all form important climaxes in the development of the story. The reproduction seems to be up to the high standard set by the former pictures, and it seems as though the interest in the film has taken on a different tone, if one may so phrase it. Apparently the picture is better understood and there is a closer following of the plot, which in this film goes into considerable detail in the development. Acting and staging seem to be in harmony with the descriptions given in the story, a characteristic of Vitagraph productions. The films form a series of which the producers may well be proud, and the picture loving public will look for the next with increased interest. - The Moving Picture World, November 6, 1909
