Critics reviews

Dwan’s deft, understated way with action sequences meshes perfectly with Fairbanks’s lighthearted, light-footed acrobatics. In such comic sequences as the warrior’s frustrated farewell kiss with his beloved, Constance (Marguerite De La Motte), the director evokes the tight web of civic order and its constraints which he’d later work out in his great Westerns.
