Succeeds most admirably
28 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

One of the very best of recent releases. It attempts the type of story so often tried in films and succeeds most admirably. The observer watches the opening scenes with some misgivings, but when the picture of the Madonna and child is unwrapped and its influence upon the various characters is shown, it can be seen that this story touches life in many different phases. There is an allegorical tinge to the scenes where the demi-monde begins her pilgrimage toward the light, and bringing in the scrub woman was a touch of genius. A particularly fine offering. - The Moving Picture World, November 8, 1913
