Miss Story has probably never had a part in which she was more charming
13 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very pretty romantic comedy in a prairie setting in which Miss Story pictures a young woman in love with one man and engaged to another. It is of no consequence that the man she loves is a cowboy, save that he takes a Westerner's ready, simple way out of the difficulty. The young woman was not insensible to obligations both ways and her struggle has been pictured very dramatically and with insight. It required artistic qualities of a high order to bring so much to the surface in such a situation. What is more, Miss Story has probably never had a part in which she was more charming, not even in that thoroughgoing romance, "Tony the Greaser." The whole cast does such fine work and the photographs and all the settings are so praiseworthy that the picture is made a desirable film. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
