God Disposes Reviews:

This is a rather hackneyed piece of work. It concerns a boy who marries an actress and is disinherited. Faced with dire poverty, he decides to test his hand at burglary and comes close to shooting his own father (only failing because his child, unknown to him, has removed the bullets from the gun).It is everytime nice to have other movie from Alice Guy's company Solax and provides a relatively rare possibility to see Magda Joy, "the Solax Kid" (in imitation of the Thanhouser company's "Kid". Marie Eline and "Kidlet", Helen Badgley). One curious aspect of these woman child-stars is that they were frequently used to enjoy both male and female kids and here a very deliberate ambiguity seems to be maintained (in dress and "Little King Fauntleroy" hair-style) regarding the sex of the child. While the cast-list identifies her as "little Gladys", both contemporary reviews scrupulously avoid any such gender identification and the surviving Dutch ver of the movie quite specifically identifies the kid in the final scenes as "the grandson".This movie is the EYE collection and was (as per my original review) previously misidentified as A Poor Lesson> It is actually correctly identified.


This is Mace Greenleaf's first picture with the Solax people. His part is a rich man's son who chooses to marry an actress and is disowned. Years of poverty follow. He attempts to rob his father's office and only by a mere possibility is kept from murdering him. The next morning his son's baby softens the old man's heart. From these two incidents, it gets its title. Mace Greenleaf's work in pictures of this type is well known. There's a kiddie in the picture that gives a nice deal of charm to it. Some of its scenes are very pretty, some are commendable for nice lighting. Its topics is somewhat sensational; where such is wanted it will be a feature. It is well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, February 24, 1912
