Mary Fuller is charming in her role
28 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very pleasing little romantic comedy by Bannister Merwin. One finds from the very opening scene good atmosphere in the characters and especially in Frank Lyon and Mrs. Wallace Erskine. Mary Fuller is charming in her role of the romantic Rowena, in which she is perfectly at home. We haven't seen her do such lively work as this in months. The author doesn't deserve most credit for this offering; perhaps the producer (C. Jay Williams) does, although a good deal belongs to the players, among whom Edward O'Connor, as the footman, has his share. It is a merry picture to delight an audience. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
