Storyline

A pretty little comedy of love's young dream, presented in the most dainty manner imaginable. 'Tis late Spring, the flowers are in bloom and the birds are in tune to the lover's song, when Alice and Frank romp among the wildflowers. Frank is desperately in love with pretty little Alice, but she, while loving him in return, is a tantalizing mite of femininity and enjoys the sensation of keeping him guessing. However, as faint heart ne'er won fair lady, he persists so stubbornly that he finally wins her response. Frank is now in the very zenith of ecstatic bliss. They part at the door and Alice goes inside. Frank is too happy to lose her company so soon, so follows after. Entering the drawing-room, he espies what appears to be the object of his visit standing at the window closing the shades. Approaching stealthily, he kisses the braids of her hair and then turning her head around imprints a kiss on the lips of: "Great Scott! her sister." Here is trouble, for Alice had entered just in ...

Will warm the hearts of the older ones
2 December 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The Biograph people have produced a film which will warm the hearts of the older ones who see it, since it will remind them of the time when they, too, were twenty and love's dream was young, and there were quarrels and reconciliations, and a determination to kill one's self because life wasn't worth living after one of those fierce misunderstandings which occur between kids of this age. One may not think that romance is as interesting as this, but if one will recall some of one's own escapades of a similar character, then this picture will appear more like a page out of one's life, modified a bit so that those who remember will not know it is yours. The quarrel and the making up are extremely well done. In fact, there doesn't appear to be much chance for criticising the acting of the Biograph Company these days, while technically there is little that could be improved. The film is good and deserves wide distribution that the millions may enjoy it, too. - The Moving Picture World, July 31, 1909
