Entertaining Mary Pickford Vehicle
28 November 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This adaptation of the Bret Harte story is a ready-made vehicle for Mary Pickford, with a blend of comedy and melodrama that allows her to perform a lot of different material. Although there are some serious story developments, the tone is usually kept rather light, and Pickford is as engaging as ever.

The story has her playing a wild daughter of a now-destitute miner, meeting the town's new schoolteacher, and contending with a plot to deprive her father of an inheritance. Actually, some of the incidental sequences are the best, and give her the best opportunities to develop her character while entertaining the audience.

Theodore Roberts is sympathetic as the father, Thomas Meighan is solid as the schoolteacher, and some of the other cast members get an occasional good moment. The story largely follows a familiar formula, but it works, and it provides good entertainment with a great leading actress.
