Critic Reviews for Shoes
There are no "big" or "sensational" scenes, merely a vision of life as it actually is, and devoid of all theatricalism.
All praise to its perfection of acting, by Mary MacLaren and the others. All praise to the fact that every atom of Its fine-drawn drama grows out of the hearts, the lives, the motives of real human beings.
Weber-who, like Griffith, knew how to pull viewers deep inside a character's emotional vortex-reveals how the chronic envy of these young shopworkers, selling merchandise they can't afford themselves, sucks them into a rapacious economy.
The production rings true, and at no moment do the players appear to be acting.
Sweet and appealing is the acting of little Mary MacLaren in the splendid Lois Weber production of Shoes.
