Original review from  Variety  (April 25, 1919):

As a whole ‘Captain Kidd, Jr.’ is rather a disappointment. The story isn’t there in picture form, the production is cheap and as a feature production, with Miss Pickford as the star, it fails to stand up at anytime. The only amusing touch in the entire picture was the parrot that shrieked curses on everybody, and these were the only laughs that were forthcoming.
