Original review from  Photoplay  (July 1924):

This new effort of Mary Pickford, one of the late Charles Major’s historical romances, is exceedingly beautiful pictorially. …. Miss Pickford is  Dorothy  and the title role will please her army of followers. Although lovely optically, it offers little new. Workmanlike of technique, her acting strikes no big spark. It is careful and considered all the way. This mood of care seems to run all through the production.
