    One of the finest productions of the season, staged and acted with the greatest care, and of fine coloring. The best acted scene is the one of the trial, when Mary snubs Queen Elizabeth; both women are grand in their respective parts. The audience was captivated and many will be pleased to see again this splendid film. If the manufacturers could give us more of these historical films they would teach history in a very interesting and effective way and parents would gladly open the purse string to send the children to shows where they can learn something: only let the historical facts be more accurate than in the one just referred to. -- The Moving Picture World, November 28, 1908
