Very melodramatic
A three-reel offering, made by Cricks Films Studio of London. Its heroine is tired of home drudgery and, although she is in love, runs away to the city, where she falls into all kinds of danger, is almost trapped into a white slave house. Her sweetheart is an inventor and has perfected a new torpedo, but his model is wanted by a villainous character who finds the girl in the city, recognizes her and makes a prisoner of her, and then uses a letter of hers to trap the man. He is lured to a hut near a river, bound and threatened with death by bomb explosion unless he delivers the model. He won't give in, and they are planning to bring the girl and blow the two up together, but she has heard of her lover's danger and, escaping, brings the police to the rescue. The bomb, a very mild exploder, goes off just as the prisoners escape and the villains enter the hut. The police find their bodies. It is all interesting, very melodramatic and, though it shows little original art, will make an acceptable offering. - The Moving Picture World, September 19, 1914
