Storyline

Here is a new and original working out of the slipper plot and Cinderella gets the prince by a route that is delightfully different. We see her, allured by the waves on the beach and secure in her solitude, slip off shoes and stockings to go in wading. And then appears the prince in the guise of a most attractive summer man, and she runs to hide her feet under her skirts, leaving one shoe and stocking on the sands. Embarrassed at her predicament, she disclaims ownership when he offers them, and so with a smile, he goes away with the shoe and stocking in his pocket. Then, to add insult to injury, he tells everyone he meets about his find, and that he thought they belonged to a certain Miss Cinderella, who dodges an introduction to him. Everybody at the hotel asks her about the matter and she grows hot and desperate at having to fib so often. Finally her chance comes. Camp Arcady, where the prince lives, is left alone one day, and she rows across to it, determined to regain her property... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Rich in pleasing comedy and is sure to please
13 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is much in the settings and background of this sprightly and very amusing comedy that reminds one of a recent Edison picture, "An Island Comedy." This is also a Thousand Island picture, it is livelier than the other. Mary Fuller plays the part of a young girl who, thinking herself alone, went in wading and was surprised by a man. She denies that the shoe and stocking that he picked up are hers. She also refuses to have him presented to her. Later, she sees a chance to steal back the shoe and stocking when the man (Darwin Kerr) is absent from his tent on the shore. She is caught. She had said that they were not hers, so in taking them, she must be stealing and is therefore compelled to own up. It is pictured and acted in a way rich in pleasing comedy and is sure to please. It is a praiseworthy picture. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
