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.
