Cleverly constructed
31 March 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-part feature which is very artistically produced by a cast made up of Norma Talmadge, Antonio Moreno, Paul Scardon. Van Dyke Brooke, little Bobbie Connelly and others. Mrs. Owen Bronson is the author, who has used a theme which, while not new, is cleverly constructed. Miss Talmadge docs some clever emotional work very convincingly. Some beautiful exterior scenes are used as backgrounds that have been artistically photographed. Comparatively speaking, it is an average release. - The Moving Picture World, November 7, 1914
