Reviews in German: "Das noch existierende Fragment von circa 2 Minuten aus dem zweiten Akt zeigt Dorothy Phillips Verzweiflung und Einsamkeit, nachdem sie ihren Job verloren hat. Abgesehen von der ansprechenden Darstellung der Schauspielerin lässt sich daraus wenig über den (bislang verlorenen) Film sagen." (lhg 2018)
