Original review from  Variety  (May 14, 1915):

Mary Pickford and beautiful scenery are the important factors in this feature produced by the Famous Players. … At Miss Pickford’s first appearance on the screen in this picture at the Strand Sunday a rousing reception was given her. … ‘Mistress Nell’ was a successful play and it is going to be a successful feature through Mary Pickford being in it.
