A little farce that tickled the audience; there was a good deal of laughter. The Nash twins have just graduated as stenographers and get jobs in different offices. Their employers are friends, and much fun is got from this situation by working up the possible misunderstandings. It is naturally acted by W. Humphrey and Wallie Van, the employers, and others. W. Humphrey produced it from the script of Eliza G. Harral, The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
Twins Alice and Edna Nash get their stenographers' certificates. One
goes to work for Wally Van, the other for William Humphrey. When the
four meet at a restaurant, confusion ensues.
The pretty Nash twins had a bit of a run in the twins, invariably together. This competent but not overwhelmingly funny little comedy has its moments, particularly when Wally Van is displaying a temper by throwing things. Mr. Van was a popular comic actor for Vitagraph in this period, and Mr. Humphrey was a serious actor whose movie career started with serious dramas and extended through the 1930s. This movie never causes any of the four to work very hard, although the presence of pretty twins who dress identically on all occasions is something that would have pleased the audience.
If you wish to see this harmless comedy for yourself, a good copy is available on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
