Makes a few laughs
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodrama produced by Arthur Hotaling for the laugh's sake and played by the company that has been putting over the Lubin farce comedies. Mae Hotely plays a young society matron who has told her husband (Robert Burns) that she has placed her jewels in his overcoat pocket and then has changed her mind, but has neglected to tell him that she has taken them out. He goes to his office and she to a bridge party. At the office there is a girl and two rival clerks. But by the time we get through with the office love story we have forgotten the real situation and have begun to feel that this part was made long, mostly to fill out the reel. The situation is taken up again in time and on account of the acting, not of the story, makes a few laughs. We cannot say that the authoress, Elsie Kiesler, has done anything very remarkable. The office force is played by Frances Mann with Walter Stull and Thomas Aiken. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
