The audience will probably be thankful for the half-loaf
30 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A good love story, very pleasantly acted by John Steppling and Mildred Weston. It has some lovely scenes which are well photographed and most effective; but it has a very unconvincing ending. Taken as a whole, it stands up very well; for such defects as it has will not take much from the pleasure a spectator will find in the good parts of it, though they surely will destroy its effect as a whole. In other words the audience will probably be thankful for the half-loaf. E. H. Calvert does good work in his characterization of the superintendent engineer who fires Steppling whom he finds making love to his daughter. Mildred. The backgrounds are interesting, being some big engineering work. - The Moving Picture World, January 18, 1913
