The story it tells is confused
27 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

There are three or more excellent jokes in this picture as it stands, but the story it tells is confused. It isn't the fault of author, players or, perhaps, producer, but of the one who laid out the sub- titles. We saw it twice, and the second time found a fine scenario behind it, one that was worthwhile making clear. The fact that we didn't sooner know, for instance, that Augustus Carney is playing the uncle of Beverley Bayne leaves the early parts of the story obscure, for this is the pivot on which the fun turns. The whole cast deserves credit. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
