Storyline

Jack Collins tried in every way possible to elude his prospective father-in-law and marry Helen, his fiancée. Wm. Ball and his wife try to assist the young couple by engaging a taxicab and taking them to the home of a minister. They are informed when they arrive that the minister is not at home. Helen's father, suspicious of what is about to happen, follows the eloping couple in an automobile and arrives at the minister's home just as the supposed minister is saying the last words of the ceremony. Ball, realizing that Helen's father will probably follow them, bribes the butler in the minister's home to don the minister's garb and pretend to have performed the ceremony. The exceedingly funny comedy of errors that arise from Helen's father thinking she is married, is indeed comical. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A fresh and piquant situation
27 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is a fresh and piquant situation in this farce and, though to the critic it seems "nursed" a bit, the audience found it very amusing. The fine acting, especially of John Steppling, does much to keep it from dragging and, perhaps, to the majority, will make it real and convincing. Dad (Joseph Allen), reaches the run-away lovers at the parsonage. The minister is not at home; his butler puts on his master's coat, and Dad, thinking the couple married, gives his blessing. The young couple said they were married and now they are in a fix, for they can't shake Dad who orders the spare room made ready. Beverly Bayne is the girl. A good deal has been made of it and it is commendable as an offering. The photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
