The German setting is picturesque
19 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A comedy-drama of decided appeal is this number, which has its first scenes laid in Germany. Hans and Gretchen are portrayed by James Lackaye and Josie Sadler, and Hughey Mack and Kate Price appear in minor roles. The German setting is picturesque and the costuming accurate. Gretchen comes to America and Hans follows later. She falls in love with George, an American, but he proves to be a flirt and she goes back to faithful Hans. The comedy is very pleasing and the reel is a desirable one. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
