Quite a lively story
11 August 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This one-reel offering tells quite a lively story in which a band of clairvoyant fakirs are rounded up. Herbert Rawlinson, Frank Lloyd and Edna Maison appear. The masked ball is the scene of the principal excitement. The photography is good and the number quite pleasing. - The Moving Picture World, May 23, 1914
