Good Dual Role For Mary Pickford
10 August 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a good short dramatic feature, highlighted by a nice dual role for Mary Pickford. The story allows her a chance to show her versatility in playing different kinds of material, and this was likely the kind of performance that eventually earned her the more prominent roles that brought her to stardom.

At the beginning of the story, Pickford's character is a neglected wife, whose brutish husband goes out carousing and then comes home and mistreats her. Then, there is a dream sequence, in which her character plays an entirely different role. The story is simple but good, and it offers a nice little showcase for Pickford's many talents. It's certainly of interest for that alone, and overall it's not bad either.
