Description by OLDIES.com:

Karl, a German living in America, returns to Germany at the outbreak of World War I to fight for his country, leaving his American sweetheart, Angela, behind. A rival for Angela's affections, Jules, returns to his native France to fight. Angela goes to France to care for a dying aunt, and after being rescued when her ship is torpedoed by a German U-Boat, arrives to find her aunt dead, and the chateau a field hospital. Angela remains there, and sends secret messages to the Allies when the Germans (including Karl) occupy the town. Karl catches Angela sending messages, but when his Colonel orders her to be shot, Karl denounces the Kaiser and joins Angela to face the firing squad. A French attack led by Jules saves them, and he pardons Karl. Angela and Karl return to America.

Rating 5.0 Charming Pickford/DeMille War Film Movie Lover: from KITCHENER, ON CA -- January, 20, 2011

As a First World War buff, and a lover of silent films, it's hard for this one to go wrong with me. I thoroughly enjoyed this short film. The print the dvd is mastered from is actually of semi-decent quality, and the score is also respectable. Some of the musical pieces in certain scenes work beautifully, though at other times not as well. It at least seems as if some effort was made for the score to fit the action on screen. Considering there isn't much out there in terms of WW1 silents, I recommend this one to anyone interested.
