Original review from Variety (Jan. 14, 1921):
With any other star ‘The Love Light’ might be classed as an exceptionally good program picture … but with Miss Pickford it is certain to suffer by comparison with her other pictures. She is a symbol of sunshiny girlishness, and does not fit well into a garb of mature morbidity. Mary in motherhood is not Mary as the millions know – and want her.
