There is much that must be highly praised in this picture; but three or four times it falls into what is not very far from the ridiculous. In the first place, it has a good story, made-up; but far from impossible. This is more than half the battle. Then there are some wholly lovely scenes. The first of these is Jephtah's daughter and her maid talking together, and among them is a beautiful scene when she comes out of the tents with her maidens to greet the returning victor. But some may find fault with the settings provided which are without warrant in the text unless a "house" meant a "tent." The battle scenes are so poor that they have the effect of the whole. With so few players these should have been taken close up. We think that the picture will be acceptable on its merits. It features Arthur Maude and Constance Crawley, ably assisted by Miss Bostwick. J.F. McDonald is the producer. - The Moving Picture World, October 4, 1913
