Catches the interest from the very start
27 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel story of adventure, with Herbert Rawlinson, Anna Little and Frank Lloyd in the cast. This catches the interest from the very start, in the circus scenes, and the later developments occur in the wilds of Africa. The discharged foreman creates trouble with the natives. The blind girl with the tame leopard made an interesting feature. This is full of exciting novelties and from start to finish makes a stirring adventure number. - The Moving Picture World, July 11, 1914
