More of a preachment than a drama
A two-part picture that seems more of a preachment than a drama. It contrasts the over opulence of a predatory rich man with the misery and squalor his grasping causes. The bigger part of it deals with poverty and misery which, convincing, as they always are, are not convincing in this connection. The story, which brings the rich man to repentance, does not make us feel that it is a bit of life and it surely is not a romance, so we cannot term it first-class entertainment. Photography, though it serves well, is not perfect. - The Moving Picture World, February 21, 1914
