It is well above the average drama
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel offering gives us the scenes from Les Miserables in which Jean Valjean robs the good bishop of his beloved candlesticks. The bishop, whose heart is very tender, says he gave Valjean the candlesticks and by this show of kindness saves his soul. The motive is a powerful one and while this version of it suffers somewhat in contrast with the familiar stage dramatization by James K. Hackett, it is well above the average drama. Frank Smith, as the bishop, is a larger man than Wm. T. Shay, who plays Valjean, and thus the contrast is lost, but the parts are well handled. A good offering. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
