We cannot report that the audience liked it
17 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is the annual Red Cross Seal picture that the Edison Company produces in co-operation with the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. As philanthropists we feel that we ought to further the picture as much as we can, but as critics we cannot report that the audience liked it; too many showed that they didn't. It is not good entertainment, as was the first Seal picture, two years ago. The trouble is that from first to last it has too obviously been forced into the pattern of the committee's purpose; it was too plainly made to teach. The lesson is valuable, and is worth putting before every audience. - The Moving Picture World, November 30, 1912
