It gives Francis X. Bushman a chance to play three characters in quick succession
9 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An entertaining picture in comedy vein. It gives Francis X. Bushman a chance to play three characters in quick succession, and the cleverness with which he docs it is the best thing in the offering. The story is the not very new one of the washerwoman and her daughter who inherit a very large fortune and the poor sweetheart of the girl who has to use his wits to overcome the mother's suddenly acquired dislike to him and his overalls. The usual fault with this story (we find it markedly in this picture of it) is that it fails to convince. It was for the comedy possibilities in it that the Essanay people produced it. It has pretty sets and pretty dresses. Mildred Weston, when in dainty gowns, takes lovely picture. Helen Dunbar, as her mother, makes a distinguished looking matron. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
