rare pleasure for silent film buffs
28 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This obscure Colleen Moore vehicle is an agreeable if inconsequential comedy best viewed for historical interest rather than laughs. Seen today, it's an invaluable time capsule to a gentler age, but probably not worth recommending to anyone who isn't already susceptible to the nostalgic attraction of silent films.

I was fortunate to see it on the big screen with live musical accompaniment, at the Pacific Film Aechive in Berkeley back in the mid-1980's. The two companion films on the same program included the minor but extremely rare one-reeler 'Something In Her Eye' (1915) and 'A Lucky Strike' (ditto), both featuring a young Oliver Hardy, years before his teaming with Stan Laurel.
