REVIEW:
THERE is a powerful story in "The Big Sister," starring the gifted stage and screen favorite, Mae Murray, which relates the struggle between two vastly different types of men for the same girl. This girl, Betty Norton, is the daughter of a worthless individual who leaves her penniless and in sole charge of her little brother Jimmy. "Nifty"  Mendez, and underworld power, attepts to get control of the girl through intimidation, and in her flight from this man she meets Rodney Channing, a young millionaire. There are the two men to who this girl appeals — arousing such very different emotions in each. But there is a third man who comes into the story, a crook upon whose better self this girl has a strong influence. The conflict of these various differing elements of society and the tremendous heart appeal which is awakened by the object of their strife as she struggles to protect her little brother from harm, form a gripping Famous Players producction on the Paramount Program.
