The story is full of human interest
13 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pathetic little offering, with Phillips Smalley and Lois Weber in the cast. The poor little girl stays out in a heavy rain storm to stand guard over a doll belonging to her friend. She dies as a result of the exposure. The story is full of human interest and is one that will be remembered. - The Moving Picture World, April 11, 1914
