An old-time Biograph cast
13 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story of the fishing banks, melodramatic, bordering on the tragic, which is rendered by an old-time Biograph cast, including Claire McDowell, W.J. Butler, Frank Evans, Charles H. West and Kate Bruce in the principal roles. The plot contains many thrilling incidents. The marine scenes have been well selected and have been beautifully photographed. This picture is up to the standard of this company's releases. - The Moving Picture World, November 14, 1914
