"New York Times" says..."Old Clothes," Jackie Coogan's latest production, is the chief screen offering
at the Capitol, and those who have enjoyed the past performances of this youngster will be agreeably entertained by this new
production. Something had to be done to cope with Jackie's present age (he is on the sunny side of 11) and, therefore, the
producer, which means Jack Coogan Sr., has seen fit to have Jackie characterize a somewhat precocious youngster, who at the
same time is thoughtful and lovable. His acting, which is thoroughly expressive, is more studied than it was in "The
Kid," "Peck's Bad Boy" or "Oliver Twist." However, it suits the part he plays, that of Tim Kelly,
business partner of an old fellow named Max Ginsberg, Tim being the brains of the so-called junk firm.
