Storyline

The story, in brief, relates to that famous character of history, Captain Kidd, from the time he became a pirate until his fall. According to history he was sent out to subdue piracy by King William III of England, who had heard of this captain's ability in combating these wolves of the marine commerce. Kidd starts out with good impulses. A misunderstanding with his sweetheart, whom he was about to marry, changed the tenure of his life, from a law-abiding citizen he suddenly was transformed into a fiend. He embarked with embittered thoughts that soon answered the summons of rancor. He fell for the temptation to reap an easy fortune through piracy.

It is spectacular and sensational
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This three-reel subject is produced by Otis Turner. Plainly much care has been given to the making of it, to the costuming and to the settings. Much in evidence is a great sailing ship, which in itself makes a most interesting background. The release is the second of the series. It is spectacular and sensational. Being the story of a pirate, naturally there is much fighting and much slaying. These features predominate to the exclusion of the human-interest element. The production undoubtedly will go strong in those houses where the sensational is popular. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
