There are some very good things in it
8 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A pretty picture which will please because of its pictorial and artistic qualities rather than through the idea which it illustrates. This is not very vital; doesn't get hold of actualities with much strength. The heroine was courted by an elderly admirer, but she didn't find much in him that attracted her. Later, when her father died, she found the world a rather inhospitable, chilly place. She had no home, no money and could get no work. This admirer again renewed his plea and she accepted him. A child was born. Then a young artist tempted her to run away with him. But love for her baby decided her fate; kept her true to herself and her home. There are some very good things in it. - The Moving Picture World, December 30, 1911
