Not a powerful story, but an entertaining one
22 November 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This film story possesses quite a strong interest, the action centering about a poor girl discharged from a sweatshop because she will not listen to the advances of the superintendent. She is taken into the home of a wealthy woman and here saves the weak son from disgracing himself by stealing the family jewels. These interior scenes were well handled, both the girl and the son doing nice work in their parts. Not a powerful story, but an entertaining one. - The Moving Picture World, October 4, 1913
