Amid the noise of great revelry, night after night, graciously greeted wherever she stopped, the Cigarette Girl was easily the favorite of the New York restaurant. Carrying her tray of cigars and cigarettes, she knew nothing else, save honesty and a happy childish goodness. Among the crowd one stood out in Cigarette's eyes as being a hero, and this was Trot. Trot, being in a despondent mood, tells Cigarette that he has lost his position through resenting an insult passed about her. Pitying him, the Cigarette Girl brings him home to live with her mother. Money Meredith, a young millionaire, was a frequent visitor at the New York restaurant, and was particularly struck by Cigarette's honesty. Meredith through his boyish inclinations falls in the clutches of Mrs. Wilson, who with her husband is scheming to secure a large sum from Meredith.

Miss Hulette dominates at all times
15 January 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Probably the best picture that Gladys Hulette has ever been featured in is "The Cigarette Girl," a five-reeler produced by Astra for release by Pathé. Unlike several previous pictures in which Miss Hulette was featured, this one is not so obviously a vehicle for her: the story is interesting and out of the ordinary, and while the character played by Miss Hulette dominates at all times, the star is not the whole works. The offering is a most pleasant and interesting combination of star and story, strengthened by a fine supporting east and intelligent direction. The story is one of New York life, of a phase of New York life that is little known outside the inner circle. It tells of a framed-up alienation-of-affections suit against a young millionaire and of the part played in the lives of all by a cigarette girl in a cabaret who is as honest as she is sweet. The story leads into the novel situation in which the cigarette girl becomes the "name-only" wife of the wealthy youth so that the designing woman with whom the youth is infatuated cannot obtain money. The youth's fortune is turned over to his wife, and she saves him from the woman and himself. In the end the girl and love triumph over the circumstances that are working against the youth. William Parke directed the picture with a care and a knowledge of the requirements of the story that have resulted in greatly adding to the worth of the production. William Parke, Jr., is seen in the role opposite Miss Hulette. Warner Oland is a smooth and plausible villain. Florence Hamilton does good work as the villain's wife. An unnamed member of the cast, who plays the part of Trot, a cabaret dancer, is a young man of considerable ability. His work is especially commendable. – The Moving Picture World, June 30, 1917
