Storyline

When Harold Hargreaves wrote the satirical society novel, "Like Lowing Kine," he achieved even more success than he had contemplated. For Harold, despite his name, was a shy, sensitive chap, and could not be a social lion, even had he desired to be. Therefore it made him unhappy to receive invitations galore, flowers and mash notes. Also to find reporters and photographers lurking on his front door step at all hours of the day or night. Under the circumstances he decided to take refuge in flight, and sought seclusion in a seashore hotel, where he modestly registered as "John Jones, of Bayonne, N.J." For a time he found that he was unknown, but then exposure came. A woman, once young, unmasked him, but consented to keep his secret at his earnest request.

Another excellently photographed and beautiful Florida picture. Mr. Cruze plays one lead, a popular novelist taking a vacation incognito. We do not know who plays Miss Arabella Snaith, the ubiquitous and troublesome, man-hunting, hotel girl, but she is a clever character comedienne. After the rising tide had kept these two out on a rocky point all one night, the man had to give a funeral and pretend to bury himself, and then he had to pay a friend to marry the young woman in order to get rid of her. The backgrounds are beautiful interiors, in a big hotel and in a private house in the South; a Florida garden park, and the sea beach of a bay in Florida. Some of the humor is a little artificial, but the views are very fine. - The Moving Picture World, May 11, 1912
