A strong and beautiful production
27 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful picture to visualize owing to the lavish oriental costumes and setting, especially the palace and throne chamber scenes. The moonlight opening of the picture on the desert is impressive. Marc MacDermott and Mary Fuller are in the leading roles. The photography and light effects are flawless. This is a strong and beautiful production. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
