Miss Lawrence gives an intimate picture of the girl's untamed but womanly heart
2 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Florence Lawrence has created a new individuality in her representation of this gypsy girl. There are some pretty scenes in this film and they are well photographed, but the picture's great interest centers in the gypsy. She belongs to a truculent Romany band characterized as "dangerous," which has camped on a grassy hillside, the property of a young clubman. The gypsies won't leave, so this man himself comes up from the city and meets the girl. His marriage to her and her reception by the man's mother and sister make a story that is very well acted and acceptable; but one that would surely lack importance without some such intimate picture as Miss Lawrence gives of the girl's untamed but womanly heart. This gypsy girl is not so delightful as a former character of this player, the hoyden, because it is not so close to us; but it roots deeper; there's more to it, and it required more of the artist. It is therefore a more praiseworthy piece of work. The picture gives no typical story of real life; it is not even a probable one. - The Moving Picture World, August 19, 1911
