Tom Wilson's part was originally supposed to be played by Eric Campbell, who had played the 'heavy' with Charlie Chaplin the previous two years. Campbell was killed in an auto accident on December 28, 1917, a week prior to the start of this film's production. Wilson would play a uniformed policeman in Chaplin's "The Kid" in 1920. See more »
This Mary Pickford film is pleasant enough, though the script is kind of weak, and the storyline very predictable. The film only lasts an hour, so if you are a Pickford fan you will probably enjoy it. People new to the genre of silent film may not be overly impressed if they view this film first. I would suggest they start with Pickford in Daddy Long Legs instead.
The cast here is fun to watch, Norman Kerry very handsome and wonderful to see Wesley Barry as Mary's little brother. Love those freckles. He gets one good scene, where he has to fight in an alley way, encouraged by his tough Irish "Ma".
I give this film 7 out of 10.
