Trivia

Hugh Allan, a handsome but very inexperienced young actor, was originally cast in the lead male role. He proved unable to carry the part, so the film producers let him go, covering with a fake story that he had broken his arm during production. He even got a fake cast for a publicity photo. Allan was grateful for Pickford's kindness and remained on good terms with her. See more »

Just unbearable
19 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why do I hate this? Let me list the ways:

I have nothing against Mary Pickford but a 32 year old woman playing a 12 year old is just stupid.

There's a fight scene in which kids are throwing bricks at each other and it's considered funny---and it goes on for 15 minutes

Strange how none of the kids are even remotely hurt

The title cards contain plenty of racial and ethnic slurs

For a "family" film the fights were WAY too violent (loved it when Pickford was punching it out with a little boy!) and the humor was just stupid

Seriously, 40 minutes in I gave up and turned it off. The slurs, racism and little kids throwing bricks at each other got to me. Also there was no plot that I could see. The only thing worth seeing in this film was William Haines who was a top leading man in the silent era.

Just painful. Avoid.
