On the way to the jeweler's he meets Marjorie's father, and together they enter the store where Dick selected a beautiful solitaire for which he paid three hundred dollars.

There is so much that doesn't convince at all
15 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce which has one or two very amusing situations; but in which there is so much that doesn't convince at all that it is cheapened. It is an over-acted picture. The artists who played it are good actors; but they were too often under the necessity of making fun out of nothing funny to do good work. Elsie McLeod plays Marjorie and. in herself, is of course delightful, while Alice Washburn, as her aunt, is also an amusing character. Edward O'Connor, playing one of the plumbers, likewise adds to the picture merely by his presence. These three come pretty near making the farce a success. Edward Tilton's role would give no one a chance. Mrs. C. Jay Williams plays, naturally, Marjorie's mother, as Edna Weick does her sister. We also notice in the cast, Edward Boulden, who as Marjorie's beau, does well when the requirements of the situation let him, as do also Arthur Housman, a plumber, and Louise Sydmeth, a servant. - The Moving Picture World, August 24, 1912
