KIRKUS REVIEW

Old time theatre, more to be read than seen (unless it could be adapted to burlesque revival as in the not very different Streets of New York). A rag picker adopts an orphan child, who grows up beautiful, virtuous and poor. A Beau Brummel falls in love with her, and -- after an interim of scandal -- wealth and society are brought to face justice and the modest modiste gets her money and her man. Old School villain -- old school heroine, Victorian melodrama, inspired by current French theatre. Limited market.
