The acting and setting are all that could be desired
4 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is the best character comedy we have seen by this company for a long time. It is a canal boat story, by Forrest Halsey, and true to type in every respect. Big Bill goes to the barbershop and raises trouble with his rival's friend. He also upsets the dance on the canal boat, but he finally gets Peg, and all ends happily. The acting and setting are all that could be desired. A good comedy release. - The Moving Picture World, September 6, 1913
