Original review from the  Los Angeles Times  (May 5, 1921):

Miss Pickford’s latest picture, ‘Through the Back Door’… has the usual smile-and-tear story, but never since ‘Stella Maris’has Mary revealed more exquisite and compelling powers of successfully paging our smiles and our tears. I’ll defy you not to laugh hilariously at Mary as the mischievous kid, who told to scrub the floor, mounts the two big scrub brushes and uses them as skates over the slippery floor.
