Original review from Variety (July 2, 1915):
‘Little Pal’ will be welcome to those who claim there is such thing as a ‘platonic friendship,’ outside the stage or between book covers. Now the pictures have it, in the Famous Players’ latest Mary Pickford production. … The F.P. has its customary faultless production. Several exquisite snow scenes are pictured at intervals. … the picture is an interesting one.
