Storyline

Ned Lawlor, an incorrigible flirt, is invited to spend his vacation with Charlie Maybury and his wife, Laura. They also invite Mary Fleming, an old school friend of Laura's, but tell her of Ned's well-known tendencies. Mary replies that she considers herself a match for the worst flirt in creation. Ned and Mary get along famously together, each of them flirting most outrageously with the other. Before he knows what has happened to him, Ned finds that he has really fallen in love with Laura and makes still more ardent protestations to her of his undying devotion. Laura finds that she is falling in love with Ned and resolves to get away in order to save herself future pain. She writes to her mother, asking her to send a telegram calling her home, as she does not wish to appear voluntarily to retire from the field.

It is filled with bits of real life
28 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

A love story, carefully written, except that the scene in the man's bedroom which closed the picture seemed an easy way out, rather than a very probable ending. The staging and the acting are artistic and graceful and also most convincing. It is filled with bits of real life and is sure to please those who like a picture that appeals to their intelligence as well as to their feelings. The story is slight. Two young people are invited to spend a few days at the home of mutual friends and fall in love with each other. The man has a reputation as a flirt and the girl mistrusts his attentions. Eliza Harrel is the writer and William Humphrey, the producer. He also plays the male lead opposite to Dorothy Kelly, the charming heroine. Charlotta de Felice and Rankin Drew play the friends. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
