Grace Kingsley Los Angeles Times A fairy tale of life, but a highly imaginative and delightful one. May 24, 2023 Full Review Theodore Osborn Eltonhead Motion Picture News Though the story for this picture is slight it is pleasing and interesting and furnishes a pleasant hour's diversion. The triteness of the story, however, is more than compensated for in the great beauty and general ability of Doris Kenyon, the star. May 24, 2023 Full Review Wid Gunning The Film Daily After the story really got under way it went from bad to worse and it kept slipping until it was entirely gone. May 24, 2023 Full Review Thomas C. Kennedy Motography No very enthusiastic remarks are prompted by the characters as the author drew them, but a great deal can be said in their favor because of an excellent portrayal or two by the players. May 24, 2023 Full Review Edward Weitzel Moving Picture World Frederick Chapin's story contains a number of entertaining moments, but the material employed is somewhat familiar. May 24, 2023 Full Review SF Examiner Staff San Francisco Examiner The human Interest element is splendidly developed. May 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
