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.
