It will make high-class entertainment, especially to older picture followers, 14 March 2017
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

The O'Kalems in this story of Joe Murphy will renew to the memory of the playgoers of a generation ago a famous old Irish drama set amid the beauties of the Emerald Isle. The World has already reviewed this three-reel feature. It only remains to say that it will make high-class entertainment, especially to older picture followers. Jack Clark as Dan O'Hara, the blacksmith, will appeal to the Irish heart. His interpretation of the role will recall his speaking predecessor whose "Misther Hay, Sor!" always brought down a house. Sidney Olcott, who produced the picture, takes a double role. His opportunity was in that of Keirnan, the man who "planted" the pikes; he was excellent as in fact was the work of the entire company. - The Moving Picture World, November 30, 1912
