The Face in the Moonlight in this World Films 5-reeler belonged to a wanted criminal, played by Robert Warwick. The heroine espies the face and declares her undying love. Thing of it is, the girl doesn't love the criminal but instead is enamored of his "good" twin brother. The story, set during the Napoleon era, was a hodgepodge of flashbacks, flashforwards and visual "interior monologues." It all added up to the usual "romance in wartime" cliches, including the heroine's last-minute appeals to save her beloved from a firing squad. The film's split-screen photography was well handled, which apparently was more than could be said for the script, which was based on a play by Robert Mantell.
