Jack Pickford plays Johnny Spivins, a character not unlike himself, in this light romantic comedy. He's immature, lazy and generally unreliable. His boss at the grocery store where he clerks puts up with him for a lot longer than I would have. Everything that he does seems to turn out wrong, but it is hard to have much sympathy for him because he is such a lout. But for some unfathomable reason, Millie Fields, the town's sweetheart (played by Marguerite De La Motte) loves him anyway. City slicker Morgan Coleman (George Dromgold) shows up to make Johnny jealous, but everyone, except maybe Johnny, knows that Millie really loves him. Towards the end of the movie, Johnny finally does one thing right (I won't spoil it for you by saying what), and all is forgiven. The film also features a remarkable mongrel dog with a crippled left foreleg, who, despite his handicap, can do amazing things like walk on his hind legs and close doors and drive a buggy with the reins in his teeth. All told, this photo play is a pleasant evening's diversion.
