There is much good human fun in it
8 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A farce-comedy in which the audience took a great deal of pleasure. There is much good human fun in it that will amuse every kind of spectator. There is also a good deal of very inelegant gum chewing in it; but with the large audience with whom we saw it this, too, made much laughter. The quality of the offering comes from the rural tang it gets from the naivety of its characters, who behave as their feelings prompt them. Howard Missimer is the gum salesman, who falls in love with Beverly Bayne, daughter of innkeeper Carney. At the dance in the town hall he gets her away from John Strepling because he can bid more for her lunch basket. The whole cast carries the picture off in first class comedy style, and the spectators plainly enjoyed all of it. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
