Not very much above the ordinary good picture
30 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Twelve was the hour the very small boy was invited to call at the rich manufacturer's office. He had stopped a runaway and saved this rich man's very little daughter. Some years later, we see the boy prospering and engaged to the girl. This girl is about a good deal. She has made friends with the old chief draftsman and when this old man gets suddenly sick, he sends a telegram asking "his little flower girl" to come and see him, which is peculiar. By her, he sends plans on which he has been working to her father, which is also peculiar. The only object apparently being to keep the girl in the story. These drawings must be complete by twelve that night. The girl's sweetheart docs the work and gets them in just in time. It is fairly dramatic; but not very much above the ordinary good picture. - The Moving Picture World, December 9, 1911
