Original review from  Photoplay  (June 1918):

Mary Pickford follows her remarkable ‘Stella Maris’ with another character study scarcely less remarkable, Amarilly Jenkins in ‘Amarilly of Clothesline Alley.’ The role is midway between the hopelessly tragic slavey in ‘Stella Maris’ and the pathetically optimistic Stella herself. … All this is done in Mary Pickford’s blithest vein, reminding us once more that she is the greatest of all screen actresses.
