It's the sincerity of the picture that this reviewer most commends
In such pictures as this is the best hope of the photography business. It is very distinctively an important picture. The story is of today; is truthfully produced, and is of an interest so wide and deep that it is bound to make a great impression. The acting is sincere. In the scenes in Tim Mahoney's kitchen there is no discordant note. Tim perfectly pictures his peculiar difficulty, while his wife shoes as clearly how the situation gnaws her. The children also are distinctly Tim's children. Good as these scenes are, the others adequately support them, particularly the scene at the gates when after the strike the men are going back to work. Tim's position is very poignantly pictured in that scene. It's the sincerity of the picture that this reviewer most commends. It may cause discussion, for it shows what made Tim become a scab. After he dies they put his name back on the books of the union. - The Moving Picture World, June 10, 1911
