The Station's Discontent Made Gloria's Movie
18 January 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Gloria Swanson is the wife of a station master of a backwoods railroad station. Bored and isolated, she runs away to a life on the stage. When she misses a connection and is succored by a similarly isolated station master and his contented wife, she remembers the value and happiness of her old life.

Only a twelve-minute cut down of this five-real movie is known to exist. You can look at it on the Harpodeon.com site. Enough remains to show a well-written and directed story, with some excellent production values for the era, and Miss Swanson's star power in the medium close up shots. She would soon leave the rapidly disintegrating Triangle Film Corporation to go to Paramount and a career that would peak in the late 1920s, but would extend notably to 1950's SUNSET BOULEVARD and into the 1970s.
