Miss Story's acting succeeds in making it very emotional
4 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture giving a heroic melodrama which is played by Miss Edith Story. She takes the part of the telephone girl who stays at her post in the burning factory to warn the employees on every floor. She, then, cannot make her escape; but is rescued just before the burning timbers fall by her sweetheart, the fireman (played by Wallace Reid). The story is of the simplest both in plot and handling; but Miss Story's acting succeeds in making it very emotional. Her power in this field is widely known and recognized; she has made more than a few weep by her art. In pictures like "The Telephone Girl." the means she uses are of the simplest; she seems to lose herself in the story. Such a story as this, however, doesn't give her the scope she has shown herself capable of making use of. It is an A-1 picture of its kind, exciting and deeply emotional. It is also very well photographed and a first class feature. The people will like it. It should be advertised as Miss Story's picture. - The Moving Picture World, March 16, 1912
