D.W. Griffith offers adventure, romance, exotic climes, a leering camera and Carol Dempster to the viewing public. The viewing public says: “Thanks but no thanks.” Carol is a zany teen determined to save her father from a murder charge in this kitchen sink (as in everything but) caper.
Oh, Dad’s guilty, Carol just doesn’t want him arrested. Unlikable characters, an inexperienced leading lady and far too little Richard Barthelmess doom this picture. Dempster is good at the stunts. Acting, not so much.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Carol fakes her father’s death, leaving him free from prosecution and allowing her to pursue a romance with Barthelmess.

If it were a dessert it would be: Cherpumple. Combining every flavor people like into one dessert just doesn’t work. Novelty only.
