Sime Silverman Variety The Renunciation, a current Biograph subject, has an amount of comedy unexpectedly revealed at the finale, which more than recompenses for the absence of any fun previously in the reel. Jun 3, 2021 Full Review MPW Staff Moving Picture World The staging is managed with fidelity and there is a snap to it which is irresistible, while the dramatic climaxes are all sufficiently interesting to hold the attention unabated.
