In retrospect, a bit of an all-star Vitagraph comedy -- no surprise as you could be starring in one and filling out a crowd in the next -- but it's certainly at least potentially interesting to see John Bunny, Vitagraph's comedy superstar until his death a couple of years later, paired against Sidney Drew before he got settled down into his satires of middle-class idiocy with his second wife.
The story, alas, is fairly straightforward and depends almost entirely on the charms of its leading players. Happily, they certainly knew how to act for the camera and if the course of the film is no surprise, it's a pleasant enough one-reeler. Vitagraph would be the last of the Patents Trust companies standing, still turning out successful films, when it was taken over by Warner Brothers a dozen years later.
