Much poignant human truth in the picture
The picture presented on this film is a life portrayal, typical and significant. The young lady who impersonates the girl deserves much praise for the artist-like manner in which she has shown the effect that the long skirt has on the children with whom before she had been content to play as a child with other children and also its consequent effect on her. They won't play with a big, long-skirted girl in the same way as formerly. The girl's mother had been worried because she seemed slow in growing up, but, under the circumstances, this was natural. The only question that arises is, where were the other girls of this girl's age who were growing up with her? However, the most critical of observers will see much poignant human truth in the picture. It is very commendable. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
