Storyline

After a lightning courtship of but a few days, a young couple unite in a hasty marriage, just in time to catch ship at Frisco for a cruise to the South Sea Islands. All goes lovely the first few days, but when three days out the charm of the honeymoon loses its edge and the young bride becomes rather more attentive to other young men on board than to her spouse, In desperation, the husband is mad enough to murder every man on board, but with the connivance of the steward, decides on a better method to kill them in his wife's affection, by the use of ipecac. It is served in their tea as they are about the pretty girl and as it takes its effect, each beats a hasty retreat to the railing to lose his, well, dignity, to say the least. A few hours stop at Papeete, on the Island of Tahiti, and the wife is given another shock, the native girls fall in love with her husband, and are not bashful. This proves the best cure of all and on the return trip all but the husband find the atmosphere ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

One or two of its scenes are a trifle vulgar
1 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A farce comedy that has a number of fresh and amusing twists and that brought out a good deal of laughter. It would have been even better if it had been conducted more naturally, and not so conventionally. One or two of its scenes are a trifle vulgar. Most of it was taken on ship, but it has a few scenes in Tahiti. The photography is clear enough to. tell the story. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
