It suggests many unrealized possibilities
A film story, following along the lines laid by "The Prisoner of Zenda" and other novels of the best selling class. The young American, played by Benj. F. Wilson, comes of royal blood and is called to the throne of Ballda. He appoints his chum as aide and some amusing situations occur. The story is well handled and nicely staged, but it suggests many unrealized possibilities, both in the way of humor and dramatic action. It is interesting as it stands, but more play should have been given to the imagination. The photography is smooth and attractive. - The Moving Picture World, February 21, 1914
