Not wholly fresh
A two-reel picture directed by John B. O'Brien and dealing with the hard lot of women working for small salaries. A big department store is the background of much of the action, and the story's heroine remains virtuous, but starves. The daughter of the store's owner gives her blood, a transfusion operation, to save the life of the poor girl, so suffering for the sins of her father. This makes the old man repent. There is a love story in it that is acceptable, but not wholly fresh. It is well acted. Billie West is the poor girl and Blanche Sweet the rich man's daughter. Wallace Reid is the poor girl's brother and Al Tilson the rich store proprietor. - The Moving Picture World, October 31, 1914
