A genuinely entertaining two-reel comedy
11 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a genuinely entertaining two-reel comedy, written by Sidney Drew, who also plays the leading part. Clara Kimball Young, Ethel Lloyd and James Young also have good parts. The successful manner in which the older couple show up the bogus prima donna and her scheming partner pleases the audience immensely. The comedy is broad in places, but entirely acceptable. The fake shipwreck in the second reel was extremely amusing. - The Moving Picture World, December 20, 1913
