One of those clean, delicious little bits
20 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A clever comedy, unusually well acted and offering a novelty in making milk a vehicle of Cupid's arrows. And then the mix-up is interesting. The daughter of the house plays maid and the contractor plays laborer, each fearful that the other will discover the deception and spoil the little love comedy. And when the mothers of the young people appear on the screen it looks, finally, but suddenly they discover that they are old friends and true love's course takes on a much smoother mode of travel. This little comedy is to be commended. It is one of those clean, delicious little bits that amuse, and at the same time arouse the imagination of those who see the picture, influencing them to read into it all sorts of pleasant features which perhaps do not appear on the screen. - The Moving Picture World, January 29, 1910
