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.
