The picture has been lavishly put on
A story of that famous adventurer, Haroun al Rashid, the Caliph of Bagdad. Miss Leah Baird plays the lead in it; is in fact the only truly effective figure in the picture. She plays a poor mother whose baby is starving and who places her living child on the bier of the Caliph's dead heir. The queen is bent down, praying to the Most High to restore his life to her darling and doesn't see the transposition. She thinks a miracle has been performed. The picture has been lavishly put on and has very good Oriental atmosphere. It is not without imperfections; but the pathetic situation of the poor mother is clearly drawn, and Miss Baird acts it very well indeed. We notice also in the picture H. L. Barry, the Caliph; Tefft Johnson, the vizier; J. R. Waite, the physician; H. T. Morey, the priest; Miss Helen Gardner, the queen. Mr. Morrison, Miss Lillian Walker and others have lesser parts. The first is a musician; the others are graceful dancers, etc. It was written by Chas. L. Gaskill and produced by Wm. V. Ranous. - The Moving Picture World, August 10, 1912
