The story itself has sufficient dramatic interest to give it appeal
A two-reel picture, produced under the auspices of the National Committee of Prison Labor. It is a strong arraignment of the convict labor contract system, the story being arranged by James Oppenheim. Rosemary Theby and Irving Cummings play the leads. Views of a knitting mill are shown and also numerous prison scenes and pictures of convicts working on the state farm in New Jersey. The observer is always conscious that he is being influenced against the contract system, but the story itself has sufficient dramatic interest to give it appeal. We liked particularly the closing scenes in the halls of the legislature, where Mary and John bring in the crippled brother and make their plea before the Assembly Committee. A strong preachment against the contract system. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
