A Friend / On Train


Dick Harcourt and Dora Dean are both cruelly jilted by their sweethearts. Each of them vows never to marry. Dick even goes so far as to join the Anti-marriage Club. But the sub-title of this film is "A Comedy Of Errors Corrected By Cupid"; and now that mischievous lad goes to work. Dick and Dora (strangers, mind you) are traveling on the same train; and by accident(?) they sit together. Now Dick, on his way to the train station, had gotten some grains of rice stuck to his clothing by accident(?). Also, by accident(?) a member or Dick's Anti-Marriage Club is riding on the same train. He sees the "couple", sees the rice, and puts one and one together to get two married people. He wires ahead to the Club members that Dick is a traitor. When the train arrives the Club members have arranged a mock reception party for Dick and Dora. But many of the good citizens of the town take the thing seriously, and soon Dora has a pile of wedding gifts. Well, a couple of well placed darts later, Dick ... Written by Geezer Noir

The fun lies chiefly in the absurdity of the situations
14 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is one of those funny pictures which are based upon the perversity of fate and the propensity of human nature to do unintended things. To bring a man-hater and a woman-hater together and set Cupid to work in devious and wholly unexpected ways, is worthy the genius of the highest type. In this instance it has been admirably done; and when the friends of the couple begin sending congratulations and presents they seek the wisest way out of the difficulty and determine to let it go at that. The fun lies chiefly in the absurdity of the situations and the fidelity with which they are worked out. The incidental features, like the Anti-Marriage Club, add to the whimsical character of the picture and increase its picturesque and dramatic qualities. It is altogether an unusually pleasing picture. - The Moving Picture World, March 12, 1910
