Another feisty Pickford showcase
29 September 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This story boasts a fine silent film star cast, including Pickford, Meighan, and Blue, and the screenplay by Frances Marion has funny moments and title cards to go along with the story of a backwards girl fighting to save the local innocent schoolteacher from being convicted for the murder of her father.

I loved the moment where Pickford confronts Meighan about the murder. Their faces are close together through the bars of the jail cell and they communicate with eyes and facial gestures alone (no title cards) so that we know what is transpiring between them without a word needing to be said. Beautiful. Meighan had such a strong masculine face, no wonder why he was so popular in the silent days as a leading man and why all the actresses loved to work with him.

At times the story seems rambling, but half-way through it becomes very cohesive and you really learn to care for these characters and their fate.
