  • A two-reel number, written by Maibelle Heikes Justice. This contains genuine pathos, something hard to achieve either in fiction or on the screen. It should have been made a little plainer that the bird had been blinded to make it sing; one not aware of this cruel practice would have some difficulty knowing what was wrong. Gerda Holmes plays the part of the girl very effectively and the scene at the last where she herself sings in her blindness is very touching. This is an unusual story in theme and treatment. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
