This story lacks punch, but it is pretty and well acted and has a pleasing character in the old elevator man who, after serving many years, knows something about the people he is taking up and down every day. He meddles to good advantage in an office love story with a less trite ending, the offering would have been very likeable indeed. - The Moving Picture World, February 7, 1914
