Storyline

Priscilla is ill with throat trouble and Paul is much concerned about this and his sympathy for her intensifies his love to such an extent that he proposes. Priscilla, of course, is willing, but papa in a joke declares Paul too young to marry. He must grow whiskers and become more manly. At this point the doctor calls to treat Priscilla for her sore throat. This M.D. is a crank on germs and microbes, arguing that bacteria lurks in everything and thorough and frequent disinfection is our only hope to escape disease. Paul is introduced to the doctor, but before taking Paul's hand Doc disinfects it. Maybe Paul isn't sore, but the worst comes when the disciple of germicides in taking Priscilla's pulse lingers. Paul leaves the house insanely jealous of the doctor, for Priscilla, to tease him, seems to be pleased with the doctor's attentions.

The love tale is lively
20 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A bright comedy telling the story of how hearts and flowers finally won in a contest with doctors and germs, though at one time it looked very much as though the latter would be successful. The love tale is lively, not improbable and the action of the persons interested is quite in harmony with the subject. The green-eyed-god Jealousy plays a somewhat important part in the drama and there are other incidents which will amuse. For example, the scene where the crank doctor disinfects the man's hand before shaking hands and that other where he prepares to disinfect the girl's lips before he kisses her. This act of his is the turning point of the play and after that the former lover has a look in. It is all lively and interesting and holds the attention of the audience without a break. - The Moving Picture World, February 25, 1911
