The photography of the exteriors is not quite up to standard
The "intruder" is a little lost boy whom a kidnapper has laid asleep in the back of a wagon, and who is thus carried to a strange farm. In the picture Claire McDowell gives us another of those characters in which she can hardly be recognized. The child, who wins favor with her, is very engaging and will excite sympathy; but there is a certain flatness about the story, and it might have been made more dramatic if the producer had delayed showing us the fate of the child or had hidden the picture's happy ending under a different title. The photography of the exteriors is not quite up to standard, but the action is perfectly clear. Charles Mailes plays the boy's father; Charles West is the discharged workman who takes the boy. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
