Tramp comedy goes far to lighten the serious side
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tramp comedy goes far to lighten the serious side of this drama, Messrs Logan and Reising are among the knights of the road who make the fun. Pauline Curley is the older of the two children who by their good work add to the interest of the picture. There is a good cast. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
