Clean, well acted and photographed
4 August 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a picture play that has good qualities engrafted in its plot, and human interest obtains. A good, little innocent country girl is imbued with ambitions above a rural life. She is favored through a rich uncle and sent to a female seminary where she has many adventures, but makes herself a favorite through her personality. The ending of this picture is highly gratifying. In all respects this offering is clean, well acted and photographed. - The Moving Picture World, May 16, 1914
