Cast overview:


It's pretty hard for an American girl to make up her mind to marry a daintily rigged French count under ordinary circumstances, especially when she's a good scout herself and in love with a college youth, a typical "rah-rah" boy, who even holds a medal for two years' boxing championship at the college. Then, to think that father actually objects to him, preferring the count. She has long ago made up her mind what to do, however, and so persistently does she snub the count, that finally father says she can have her college boy lover if he shows himself able enough to earn, well, about $1,000 a week. Innocently, not knowing what that amount means, she tells her sweetheart of it, and so confident is she that it is a real "cinch" for him, that she almost makes him believe he can do it. Together with a pal of his, we see him bemoaning his ill luck, when they come to an athletic club, where a big boxing bout is scheduled for a purse of $1,000. And as they stand looking at the big ...

The fighting is fast and furious
9 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An "Imp" film, which departs from the usual thing, in that it contains a double climax. There is the happy termination of a little love episode and there is a real enough boxing match between two prize- fighters. The "Imp" stock company furnished the clever actors in the story part and two professional pugilists were engaged for the heavy work. A college chap, who is the champion of his college with the gloves, is in love with a girl who is also the victim of the attentions of a French count who is after her money. The girl's father likes the college chap, but thinks he is good-for-nothing, and tells him that if he can prove that he can earn $1,000 inside a week he will be accepted as a son-in-law. The opportunity presents itself when the manager of a fighting bout gets a message that one of the principals cannot appear, and the college fellow takes his place and wins the $1,000 and the girl. As a subject it is well handled; the fighting is fast and furious, and everything appears real except a painted scene which unfortunately detracts from the effect of an otherwise meritorious picture. - The Moving Picture World, January 8, 1910
