Ella Hall has never had quite so good an opportunity to bring out her special characteristics
Perhaps in her entire career as a screen actress Ella Hall has never had quite so good an opportunity to bring out her special characteristics as in this entertaining subject. It gives her the opportunity she has always wanted, that of playing both a little girl and a grown woman in the same photoplay. There is probably no one in the moving picture field who combines the two ages in one personality so strikingly. Ella Hall looks like a grown woman at times, but she has never left off being a little girl, a fact she abundantly proves in this number. The story itself is an absorbing one. It was written by Lois Zellner, adapted by Doris Schroeder and directed by Douglas Gerard. This story is so natural and convincing that it deserves high praise, both for its very human plot and the manner of its presentation. Mary Hirsch does admirable character work in the part of the mother. Others in the cast are Emory Johnson, T. C. Crittenden, Mrs. L. C. Harris and Grace McLean. The war episodes in France, at the beginning, are exceptionally well staged. - The Moving Picture World, May 4, 1918
