ReceptionEdit

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.[2]
