Storyline

The father of Bob's sweetheart doesn't think much of him, which fact is made undeniably clear when papa, upon entering the house, surprises the loving couple together and kicks Bob into the street. Bob's friends suggest an elopement, to which plan he is heartily acquiescent. It was largely due to a trick of fate and Bob's quick wit that the plan succeeded. But, oh, what an experience!

So much waving of arms and feet and puckering up of lips
21 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

A good farce comedy that is quite fresh and very funny. We usually enjoy these amusing sketches on the Biograph split-reels. Both readers of this periodical and people we meet on the street find fault with what we say about them. We have been told that we like them only because we have a fixed idea that anything with the Biograph name on is good. It isn't true. The ideas in many of these farces are good (not in all) and they are often played by actors who know their business. They nearly all have one great fault. There is in most of them, in minor parts usually, not always, so much waving of arms and feet and puckering up of lips that it wearies and leaves the impression of silliness. There is some of it in this picture, especially in the lover's man friend who seemed to like the center of the stage. We do not think that the girl's father could have been played better. - The Moving Picture World, August 31, 1912
