Although listed as a melodrama, this is a romantic comedy of the Mabel Normand feature mold, with the lead charmingly played by Dorothy Devore. Miss Devore plays Tommy, a young woman who runs a boarding house for her father, an inventor of eccentric devices, and the boarders are the usual collection of neurotics in such an effort.
Although no world beater, Miss Devore knows how to play this sort of role, and while there is little subtlety expended in the performances or title cards, there is a good effort, a subplot involving moonshiners that is well integrated into the story and, for once, the usually pointless Harry Gribbon has a good comic role. This one is worth looking at.
