It might have had a bit more punch if it had been made simpler
24 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Miss Ruth Robinson plays a romantic leading role in this artistic melodrama. The story of this little Italian girl's adventures is fairly well designed and effective, although it might have had a bit more punch if it had been made simpler. Perhaps the picture suffers a little from the fact that the position of one of the girl's lovers, the one who was to play the villain, wasn't clearly defined early in the picture. As shown, it was as in real life, but this is a melodrama. Its effect kept us from being sure of him for a while and even from being sure of the girl. Rosa gets a position as a nurse, but is soon discharged through no fault of hers. One of her admirers, who is to be the villain later, gets her another job. The little girl, who had grown to love Rosa while she was her nurse, runs away from home to find her and encounters the villain (Walthall) who at first intends taking her to Rosa, but then conspires with other rough characters to hold her for ransom. Rosa and her true sweetheart (Rosa has overheard the plot) very melodramatically aid the police and the child's father in rescuing her in several thrilling hairbreadth incidents. - The Moving Picture World, December 2, 1911
