It is a picture of the fascinating game of love-making
An excellent romantic comedy, written by Gene Gauntier and produced by Sidney Olcott, partly on the good ship Adriatic going across, partly at Luxor in Egypt, and partly in the desert. Miss Gauntier plays a charming young widow. Mr. Jack Clark plays an unattached young man who has fallen in love with her. It is a picture of the fascinating game of love-making. It is sincerely romantic; this hides the fact that at times its plot becomes a bit' artificial. We hardly need to say that it is well acted. The camera work is excellent and gives us some new glimpses of Egyptian life. It is a very good picture. - The Moving Picture World, July 20, 1912
