editing does not make a film and can just as frequently mar it
This is indeed a curious film which seems to have been made by the Logan family to promote the distinctly unfetching little Yvonne Logan as a child-star (her father,Jean Logan, wields the camera).
It is a perfect example of "the classical realistic" style and the other reviewer's useful cut-count is an important reminder that films are only as good as the material they contain and the imaginative power of the film-maker and has nothing necessarily whatever to do with the style of the film-making and the use of editing to create continuity (often in practice a remedial process to repair the effects of poor mise en scène and inadequate cinematography).
If we were to believe the "editomaniacs" among the critics and if the quality of films could genuinely be judged by a simple matter of "cinemetrics", then this film would rank up with Griffith's Intolerance. In fact it is a poor piece of work and survives as nothing more than a curiosity.
