A good Mary Pickford vehicle
21 February 2019 | by JackGdhSee all my reviews

Honestly, if you're thinking of seeing your first ever silent film, this probably shouldn't be the one you see. Things like a 33-year-old actress playing a child are a little bizarre even if you think you're used to the style of the era. But as a showcase for Mary Pickford, it's a great film. The story and pacing is a little uneven, but her acting is excellent. The Flicker Alley DVD is a beautiful restoration and the score on the DVD is fascinating - not old-fashioned like a "typical" silent film score but not so modern like some other scores (usually for movies like Nosferatu or Metropolis) that are so good at making things seem terrifying or futuristic - I think it's a good fit for the movie, which is not horror or science fiction but has a little bit of just about every other genre you could imagine. Basically, you're in for quite a ride when you watch this movie. So glad this was available on DVD!
