All well pictured and convincing
13 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This splendid three-reel number, written and produced by Otis Turner, appeals to the imagination. It is an adventure story, clean-cut and full of atmosphere. It runs like one of the romances of H. Rider Haggard combined with a Jules Verne novel. The manner in which the airship invades a native village in Africa makes the best kind of an adventure yarn, all well pictured and convincing. A desirable release. - The Moving Picture World, April 11, 1914
