Critical appraisal

Up the Road With Sallie is “typical of many unpretentious but entertaining features” that in the silent era ran about an hour (typically of 4-or 5-reel productions). Film historian Charles Hopkins of the UCLA Film and Television Archive remarks:

Sallie is notable on two counts: for a sparking performance by leading lady Talmadge (best remembered today as the Mountain Girl in the Babylonian sequence Griffith’s Intolerance (1916) and as a rare surviving film by William Desmond Taylor, whose unsolved 1922 murder ended the career of Mary Miles Minter...”[4]
