Mr. Oppenheim is a poet of rare gifts

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
12 November 2016

This picture's center of interest is the heart of a brave and very human little girl, "Billie," played with much skill by Miss Margaret Shelby. The scenario is by James Oppenheim and is taken from one of his own short stories which appeared in "The Outlook." Mr. Oppenheim is a poet of rare gifts besides being a novelist and short story writer and his distinguishing quality, a sincere and sympathetic insight into the sorrows and troubles of those who are kept down, shows very distinctly in this picture. Mr. Oppenheim knows the common people and has genius, we hope he will keep on turning his short stories into photoplays. In this picture, Mr. Marc McDermott plays Billie's father, a drunken, worthless man, who is afraid of her. A stranger, played by Walter Edwin, sees the little girl's difficulties and helps her out a little. We also notice in the picture Bigeloe Cooper, Bliss Milford, Edna May Weick and Wm. Porter, Jr. It is a good picture. - The Moving Picture World, May 18, 1912
