Storyline

Living in squalor with his mother, "Kaintuck" goes out to earn a few pennies selling newspapers. Mag, his mother, who spends every cent she gets on drink, hastens along the street begging from everyone she meets. A man impatiently pushes her out of his way, causing her to fall back on the pavement and strike her head on the curb. She dies later at the police station. "Kaintuck," a manly little lad of ten, now lonely, not only bitter but sorrowful, starts away through the country as a tramp. A year later he comes to the Cross Roads store and there asks for work to pay for his meal. Hendricks, the kindly, white-haired proprietor, invites the boy to remain.

It holds the attention all the way
19 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Simple indeed is this story, yet it holds the attention all the way by reason of the human interest in it. Paul Willis, as Little Kaintuck, does excellent work; he is a real boy, yet showing in his face the resolution of a man. Karl Formes is good as the mountain storekeeper. Margaret Montague writes the script and Robert Thornby produces it. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
