The Ghetto pictures are as good as any ever put on the screen
16 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Does fortune favor the innocent, as graphically pointed out in this instance? This film will set one thinking, considering the question on its merits. Perhaps the most one can reasonably say is that it sometimes favors, as is graphically shown here. It would not be wise to say anything further. Interest in the surroundings represented in this picture will be quite as strong, perhaps, as in the story. That Ruth finally escapes from unjust accusation and the law is pleasing to practically all who see the picture, but that the scapegrace who so nearly entrapped her likewise escaped punishment for his misdeeds seems like a miscarriage of justice. But Ruth finds a good home and triumphs over the most adverse conditions, and whether one is ready to say that the story is true to life or not it is a pleasant ending, and in that, at least, is a happy change from some others. The Ghetto pictures are as good as any ever put on the screen and will afford those who never saw the Ghetto a good idea of what it is really like. - The Moving Picture World, June 18, 1910
