"Vuosi kulunut D.W. Griffithin debyyttiohjauksesta ja ote on jo aivan jotain muuta. Tällä kertaa tarina kertoo viljan hinnalla kikkailevasta spekulantista, joka on ajaa köyhän kansan kurimukseen silkkaa ahneuttaan. Toisin sanoen yksi variaatio pahasta korporaatiosta jälleen kerran. Taas kerran varsin simppeli lyhäri, mutta sadan vuoden takaisella mittapuulla erinomaisesti kerrottu ja leikattu sellainen. Tämähän oli kantaaottavuudesaan aikoinaan valtavan kohuttu ja tähän joutui silloi"
