Here is a mighty pretty story
8 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a mighty pretty story, and it is well photographed in splendid settings, interior as well as exterior. The leads are played by Phillips Smalley and Lois Weber, and played in the best of their finished style. Also they are well supported. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
