Good dramatic value
9 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this rather complex story a waif left at the door of a young woodsman's cabin brings about some misunderstandings which have a good dramatic value at times. Wallace Reid and Dorothy Davenport play the leads. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 21, 1914
