Original review by Martin J. Quigley (Nov. 1922):

We shall not be surprised if Miss Pickford’s new production of the famous story of ‘Tess of the Storm Country’becomes the most popular picture ever made. We do not view it as one of those sensational and timely successes which creates a great furor for a moment and then quickly shifts away to make way for another similar skyrocket hit. This picture is almost here to stay; it will go on year after year – and it is eminently deserving of it.
