Not great, but for 1914 it's pretty good.
18 May 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a rather star-studded film, though some of the future stars you may not recognize. The film is directed by and stars Mabel Normand--probably the first big female comedy star on screen. She is supported by Al St. John (frequently in support for Fatty Arbuckle, and later in talking Westerns) and Charley Chase (who blossomed into a headliner in the 1920s and 30s with Hal Roach Studios.

The film is a two-reel comedy about a lady who is engaged to the boss' son, though no one else knows it. When another lady comes to work and the boss pays her lots of attention, Mabel is jealous and dresses up as the son's chauffeur to spy on them. At the same time, Mabel's brother (St. John) is dressed up as Mabel and the boss begins to make the moves on him/her. It's one of the earlier cross-dressing comedies I've seen and is good for a few laughs.
