This was the first film of Mary Pickford's new production deal. The part of the deal that clinched it was she was finally able to have approval over the final film edit, which she had been unable to get before. It was predicted by some to be a risky deal, but this proved to be a big success for Pickford. See more »

This movie made me happy and not a lot of movies do that nowadays. Even though the mood of the movie changed halfway through, I think it helped differentiate between the 12 year old and the adult. I highly recommend this movie to everyone!
The first time I saw this movie was late at night. My dad was flipping through channels and came across this movie and said that I would love it. Not just because it has Mary Pickford in it. So I was allowed to stay up until midnight on a school night, and back then it was a big deal! That suddenly became my dad's and my thing, to stay up late and watch old movies. I will always love this movie for itself and now it's sentimental value.
