Storyline

The old fisherman has a fault and a virtue; the fault is that he doesn't take kindly to any pranks at his expense; the virtue is that he has a most charming and petite daughter. There are two fisher lads in love with her, but they are both real imps for deviltry and the old man does not take kindly to their visit. The girl has no particular choice, and neither of them seem to be disposed to incur the ill will of the other by winning her abruptly. It would probably go on thus indefinitely if something didn't happen. One day an itinerant photographer comes to the village and she has a tintype taken of herself. She shows this to her admirers and now ensues a desperate battle of wits as to which is to get it. Unable to coax it from her, one of the young men sees a chance later to enter the cottage while no one is in, and sure enough he finds the photo in the pocket of her apron which hangs on the wall.

It is a pretty story, well told
3 July 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A complication arising over the eternal triangle, a pretty girl and two men who want her, a stolen picture and lost money. The young man who has the picture refuses to be searched for the money, but that difficulty is speedily removed and then begins a battle of wits for the young woman's hand well worth seeing. Of course there is a winner in the contest, and one feels very much like offering hearty congratulations when he succeeds in his efforts. It is a pretty story, well told and admirably photographed. There is plenty of action and excellent arrangement of details in working out the scenes. - The Moving Picture World, July 2, 1910
