This comic tale of buried treasure should have been a winner, but it turned out to be one on Mary Pickford's misses. The credits were solid -- the prestigious William Desmond Taylor directed, and Frances Marion wrote the scenario from a Rida Johnson Young play. The other leading players (Douglas MacLean and Spottiswood Aitken) were impressive, too. Perhaps Taylor was too serious to direct this story, which borderlined on slapstick. Neither of the other films he and Mary made together (How Could You, Jean? and Johanna Enlists) were any good, either. After this film, Pickford began a new contract at a new studio and worked once again with her then-favorite director Marshall Neilan on the far more appealing Daddy Long Legs. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
