The faces are very much in shadow
This is a love story, with an opium smuggler's cave in the background. It takes place on the California coast. To add to its interest, there are sea pictures both exciting and beautiful. The story is plainly told, and with very beautiful settings. The photography shows the backgrounds plainly, but the faces are very much in shadow. The story has a girl and her accepted lover to whom her father objects; he prefers the opium smuggler. The objecting father is saved from death in the sea by the girl's lover, and the treachery of the opium smuggler is disclosed at the same time. Grateful for his life, and doubly glad his daughter did not marry Laredo, the father gives his consent. - The Moving Picture World, May 20, 1911
