Terrible, overwrought early talkie with a head scratcher of an Oscar winning performance from Mary Pickford. She's at least a decade and a half too old for her part and tries to compensate with preciousness. It doesn't work.

Interesting early talkie starring silent screen star "Little Mary" Pickford. She plays a Southern Belle type who loves a man her father hates and has forbidden her to associate with. When the father takes care of business his way, Mary is faced wth dilemma of lying about her beau to save her father or stick by her love and watch Dad go to prison. The acting was still very much in the silent style, with lots of extreme facial expressions and mannerisms. But the story was OK, and I had never seen Mary Pickford in a film before. She overacts somewhat, but if you squint your eyes just right, she was still pretty convincing. An interesting little piece of melodrama.

I finally see the great Canadian Pickford on the big screen. Not bad but not particularly memorable either.

It's very dated, but it still entertains and has Mary Pickford in an Oscar winning role. She's good, but not sure if it's Oscar caliber. Fascinating for it's historical significance. Good production.

Just couldn't make it past the first fifteen minutes. Mary Pickford's acting is obviously suited much better for the silent screen as her voice adds nothing but annoyance. Her Oscar is obviously not deserved for this role - but it allowed for the rules to be changed so that no one could charm or buy the affections of judges again.

It is interesting how these early talkies make one yearn for the silent screen, when you didn't have to try to understand what people were saying to get the plot - and the acting relied on something more than recitation.

The film is dated and is like a bad soap opera. The acting is laughable and Mary Pickford looks lost in her own overacting. Probably in the top five of worst Best Actress Oscars of the history.
