Lively and sure to amuse
22 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce after an old pattern but lively and sure to amuse many spectators. In a way, the term "trouble" refers to Fraunie Fraunholtz who has a scrap with his cook (a very good farce character) who leaves. Fraunie's wife (Blanche Cornwall) tries her hand with little success and the evening meal Fraunie has to cook for himself with wonderful results, including a flooded kitchen. It is likely to make good laughter in many places but not in all. - The Moving Picture World, July 12, 1913
