Parental ire does not hinder Billy, and he and Edith keep many a clandestine meeting. When he asks her to elope with him she refuses, and Billy then bits upon the idea of abduction.

It has been handled very cleverly
14 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Hughie Mack, as an unwilling father and in a banker's beard, has refused Wallie Van the hand of his daughter (Edith Nash), and the youngsters have agreed to have Wallie's friends steal her. Edith's sister, Alice, is away at college; but comes home at the inopportune time and is mistaken by these friends for her sister whom Wallie wants stolen. There is trouble and it all ends in the police station; but it has been handled very cleverly by both author, Theodore Weeks, and producer, Frederick Thomson, and is amusing all through. While at its best, it is laughter compelling, making a very good picture, the best comedy today, and a desirable offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
