A good newspaper yarn
A two-reel number, written by Harry Car, with Herbert Rawlinson and Anna Little in the leading roles. This is a newspaper yarn and an entertaining one. The runaway girl, whom the sob sister has aided, is about to be given publicity of an undesirable sort when the managing editor learns she is his own daughter. The climax has in it an element of surprise and the views of the composing room and linotype machines should prove very interesting. A good newspaper yarn enacted by a pleasing cast. - The Moving Picture World, July 18, 1914
