Storyline

This story tells of a crippled child of wealthy parents, who is saved from death from a runaway team, by Marie, a waif of the streets. Children recognize no social distinctions; the children become friends, and Ronald gives Marie his toy Jester, which she hugs to her bosom as she again wanders on. Ronald writes to Santa Clans, asking for a little sister. Marie, ere she sinks unconscious in the snow, traces a letter to Santa Claus on a frosted window glass, asking that he grant Ronald whatever he may wish. She dreams that the Jester comes to life and summons a beautiful chariot from Fairyland in which they go together to Toyland. Santa Claus greets her and gives her a warm welcome. She is invited to accompany him on his trip. A beautiful doll is taken along. Marie awakens to find herself in a warm bed and finds that she is in the home of Ronald. (His father having found her in the snow.) Against the chimney stands a doll's box, but no doll. Instead she finds a beautiful suit of clothes... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A little too much "Santa Claus"
17 April 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A well produced film of some interest at this time of the year. It is regrettable that such a strong and sympathetic subject should be marred by the desire of the producers to put in a little too much "Santa Claus." The mother, instead of the nurse, should have entered the room to find the boy sleeping on his letter to Santa Claus. She should have discovered the letter, and when she goes out and finds the poor little girl sleeping in the snow and still holding the doll of her boy. she would understand the letter and adopt the child as a suitable reward. This exaggerated big doll is out of proportions, and a boy does not receive dolls. The picture ends without showing that either father or mother are told of how the boy's life was saved by the street waif. -- The Moving Picture World, December 26, 1908
