Reviews in German: «Eine der wenigen Komödien unter den 300 Filmen des berühmten David Wark Griffith 1875-1948, geprägt von hintergründiger Ironie, Humor und tiefer Menschlichkeit. Der Komiker W. C. Fields tritt als erfolgloser Taschenspieler auf, der sich mit seiner Adoptivtochter mühsam durchs Leben schlägt, bis sich in der Heimatstadt von Sallys Mutter herausstellt, daß das Mädchen aus vornehmem Bürgerhaus stammt.» (kabel eins filmlexikon) "(...) Wenig Rühmenswertes lässt sich von D.W. Griffiths neuesten Film "Susan of the Sawdust" (sic!) sagen: eine uninteressante, wenig überzeugende Artistengeschichte, altmodisches Rührstück mit gezwungem Humor und filmtechnisch ohne besonderen Wert (...)" (H.R.H. in "Der Kinematograph" Nr. 967 vom 30. August 1925, pg 12)
