Pleasing and well handled
6 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A comedy of the quiet sort, by Mark Swan. The young wife is content to be neat and plain, till her mother comes and shows her how to look more attractive, much to the husband's delight. His friend Bill falls in love with the mother. Quite pleasing and well handled. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
