A few quiet laughs in it
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A pleasing comedy, with a few quiet laughs in it, in which Binks sends flowers and jewelry to Miss Lillie Brown, a colored girl, thinking the name was that of her mistress. The colored girl thinks the presents come from her dusky lover, Sam, whose stock immediately rises in her estimation. But Lillie is not so pleased when she is arrested for stealing jewelry. Binks and her mistress come to the rescue and it is here that Binks learns his error for the first time. Quite amusing. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
