The story visualized in "Her Good Name," a five-reel drama produced by the Van Dyke Film Corporation for release by Art Dramas, while obvious fundamentally, has a few strong points in its favor. As a whole the story is elementary, and artifices of the showman that have been used with success since the birth of showmanship have been used in the production of the picture. The human interest element is given a strong play, and there are a few times during the screen telling of "Her Good Name" at which interest is whetted to a keen edge. The story is of the country girl who meets the city artist. In this type of story there is always a certain road to be followed, and in this particular production that road is traveled, but with several steps off the beaten path that make it fairly interesting. The company of players is a competent one. Jean Sothern heads the cast. She has a certain charm and when called upon shows ability. A quite good bit of characterization is done by William H. Turner, who plays the part of a country hotel keeper, the father of the girl. Earle Metcalfe competently carries the role of the young artist, as does Arthur Housman that of the village youth of unsavory reputation. Others seen on the screen are Ethel Tully, Barbara Castleton and Mrs. Parker Spaulding, all of whom make the most of the allotted parts. The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1917
