The complicated love story is well worked out
15 February 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An excellent dramatization and reproduction of Rex E. Beach's well known story. It is in every sense a heart story and the human interest is strongly maintained throughout the entire film. The interest is heightened by the accurate reproduction of the scenery in the Alaskan gold fields where the main action of the story occurs. This novel is so well known and has been read by so many that it seems needless to repeat it here. The Edison players have caught the spirit of the piece and have infused into it much of the characteristic energy which marks Mr. Beach's novels. The complicated love story is well worked out and there seems to be a rather better interpretation of the author's conception than ordinarily in these dramatizations. The acting is an improvement over that which is sometimes undertaken to interpret a modern novel, and is remarkably well sustained. The dramatic situations are managed in a way that leads up to the climaxes gradually, graphically presenting scenes and types characteristic of the wild life in that section of the world. Altogether this production is to be commended as a worthy representation of a good book. - The Moving Picture World, January 15, 1910
