*"The film starred Mary Pickford and was her first film working with the actor/director James Kirkwood. The film is based on a novel, The Eagle's Mate, by Anna Alice Chapin. Like many American films of the time, The Eagle's Mate was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, for the 1918 re-release of the film, the Chicago Board of Censors required cuts, in Reel 2, of all scenes where men fall after being shot, Reel 3, man tearing opponent's mouth in fight, and, Reel 5, Fisher shooting her husband."
