A large audience watched it closely
A picture dealing with the sweetheart who didn't know that her lover had a sister. There also is not a great deal that's new in the way it is worked out. It has this advantage: Florence Turner plays the lead, and "Jean," the Vitagraph collie, is used very pleasingly in bringing the two lovers together again. There are also some very pretty backgrounds. Yet it lacks distinction. Miss Turner has very little chance to show her powers, and Tom Powers, who plays opposite to her, didn't seem to fill the bill convincingly. Edith Halloran plays the sister. A large audience watched it closely and seemed much interested. The use of the dog helps the offering very much. - The Moving Picture World, December 21, 1912
