Kept us all laughing heartily, 28 July 2017
Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

W.B. Courtney has thought out a thoroughly funny comedy to feature Bunny as a police captain and he has had no role, except Capt'n Bunce, that fitted him quite so well. Hughey Mack is a common officer and both are courting Widow Price. It is a courtship astonishingly full of unexpected ups and downs in which the wits of Officer Mack are pitted against Captain Bunny's authority, but the power to command of the man higher up wins out in the end as the sympathies of the spectator desire. It pleased the audience wholly and kept us all laughing heartily. The photography is good. Frederick Thompson produced it. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
