Film Notes

“In The Half Breed, a Triangle-Fine Arts feature, Douglas Fairbanks has another of those sympathy-compelling roles that he played in The Good Bad Man. The story is one of Bret Harte’s and deals with the early days in the California wilds, and as the half breed Fairbanks scores distinctly. The majority of the scenes in the picture are laid in the forest of giant redwood trees and in a street of the small California town (...) The story is well told in film form and the wonderful locations used for the picture make it seem most impressive. Mr. Fairbanks will add a number of admirers of the host who hold him as their own particular screen favorite. It is a picture well worth playing by any exhibitor”.
