Reviews in German: "... Die deutsche "Madame Dubarry" war jedenfalls nicht ohne Einfluss auf seine "Orphans of the Storm". Der Film stellt einen grotesken antirevolutionären Karneval dar; Danton, durch die Strassen von Paris galoppierend, rettet die unschuldige Lillian Gish im letzten Moment vor der Guillotine..." (Georges Sadoul, Geschichte der Filmkunst, Fischer Cinema pg 207)
