Quotes

Title Card: [Opening lines] TIME, - Before and during the French Revolution. Our story is of two little orphans who suffer first through the tyranny - selfishness - of Kingly bosses, nobles and aristocrats. After the King's Government falls they suffer with the rest of the people as much through the new Government, established by the pussy-footing Robespierre through Anarchy and Bolshevism. Strange that both these evil rulers were otherwise highly moral men except that they saw evil in all who did not THINK AS THEY DID. The lesson - the French Revolution RIGHTLY overthrew a BAD government. But we in America should be careful lest we with a GOOD government mistake fanatics for leaders and exchange our decent law and order for Anarchy and Bolshevism.
