Philip French
Guardian

The authentic, silent, swashbuckling classic, an early two-colour Technicolor production that the athletic Douglas Fairbanks starred in 85 years ago.

Combustible Celluloid

For this film, Fairbanks scaled back, making it his shortest and least extravagant.

Silent Fairbanks has acrobatic Doug and great effects.

| Original Score: 5/5

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Good swashbuckler in early Technicolor marred by stiff direction from Parker.

| Original Score: 4/5

One of the silent era’s most spectacular action blockbusters… Fairbanks’s astonishing acrobatics remain dazzling today.

The best stunts were actually performed by Richard Talmadge, but Fairbanks is captivating.
