Storyline

A Hallowe'en story. It concerns itself with a mischievous young woman, a more than audacious youth, an automobile breakdown and a domestic hurricane, good elements for trouble of the comic sort. The first of the three kisses herein to be made famous is taken by our hero only after more than usual provocation. He lends "first aid to the injured" by helping the little heroine's chauffeur to repair her automobile and she does not even deign to smile upon him. This added to the fact that she is a most bewitching young woman is surely ample excuse for his stealing the first kiss and promptly whirling himself away in his own machine before she can tell him what she thinks. Of course only Fate herself could so arrange matters that these two young folk should find themselves guests of the same host that very evening and only Fate could provide that the cook and maid should quarrel and so the hostess be left with no one to serve the dinner so carefully planned to please our hero, young ...

The play is delicate and the humor artistic
16 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

The success of previous comedies written by Carolyn Wells especially for this company was so pronounced that another has been brought out, quite as piquant and quite as entertaining as the others. The new release is a Hallowe'en story, based upon the time-honored customs of that season, aided and abetted by an exceedingly pretty girl and an audacious young man, who steals two kisses, and takes a third, though perhaps he didn't steal the last one. There is a quality to Miss Wells' work which adds to the attractiveness of the picture, proving conclusively that successes in comedy can be as marked when the play is delicate and the humor artistic as when it is of the broader and nearer horseplay type. The success of the Edison Company with Miss Wells' comedies should encourage further development along the same line and lead other producers to offer something delicately amusing, rather than the broad and coarse comedies which have done duty so long. The acting in this film is quite in harmony with the subject and correctly interprets the idea of the author. The photography is clear and the printer did his work well. Altogether it is a satisfactory film and everyone connected with its production is to be congratulated upon its success. - The Moving Picture World, November 13, 1909
