While other silent-film studios had their Muriel Ostriches and Arline Prettys, Universal had the dazzling Louise Lovely. In The Girl Who Wouldn't Quit, Lovely plays the daughter of a mine owner (Henry A. Barrows). When her dad is falsely accused of robbery, Our Heroine sets about to clear his name. And, true to the title, she won't quit, not even when threatened with death or fates worse than death. Featured in the cast is the statuesque Gertrude Astor, a favorite of comedy fans via her later co-starring gigs with Charley Chase, Laurel & Hardy and The Three Stooges. The blond Louise Lovely hailed from Sydney, Australia and became a star in several Universal melodramas. The Girl Who Wouldn't Quit was based on The Quest of Joan, a story by James Oliver Curwood.
