Full of subtle sentiment
There is much true humanity behind the action of this picture, written by M.L. Goetchins, but it makes one feel that a great deal of it fails to get over. The acting is always pleasant to look at and at times shows skill, but it is not wholly effective in convincing us that the players are what they want to seem. The failure of the picture is not at the door of the players. The producer, Ulysses Davis, has filled every requirement up to the point where the bare statement of fact fails to carry all the spirit the story needs, but from that point he is not sure enough. The story is, or ought to be, full of subtle sentiment and is probably a case where two reels were needed to make a strong development. The lovers from France and simple souls do not understand the atmosphere of American life, but try to conform. An up-to-date boarding house girl makes mischief and then they fly away to France and happiness. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
