The production is not strong
13 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This features the use of radium in curing insanity. The scenes in the first reel are very disconnected and obscure in meaning and throughout the picture the photography is at fault. In spite of these defects some of the scenes are interesting, but as a whole the production is not strong. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
