  • A picture of great dramatic power, and worked out with some magical appliances and apparatus for making sudden changes. The acting of Jehan is calculated to maintain the interest through the picture. His simulation of frenzy, when he sees the spirit of the man he has murdered appear at almost every turn, is well done. Aside from this one character the action amounts to but little. The scenic qualities are interesting and develop as the picture proceeds. The first prayer, the greatest honor the king could bestow, is tragically transformed into a suicide by which the usurper makes a confession of his guilt. - The Moving Picture World, July 2, 1910
