Storyline

Old Captain Barnacle, a widower, contemplates a second marriage. He takes his old friend Captain Bunce into his confidence and Bunce tells him of a very attractive young lady, recommending Miss Ivy Leach, a daughter of a widow, who keeps a stationery and cigar store. Ivy is very much in love with Sam Morton, a young clerk, notwithstanding her mother's objections. When Bunce comes to see Mrs. Leach, on account of Captain Barnacle's bank account, is delighted.

Her mother insists that she shall marry him and to get rid of her entreaties she consents to marry the old "salt." The anxious Captain makes preparations for his second matrimonial venture.

It doesn't get dull any of the way
22 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

A comedy presenting Capt. Barnacle in the role of love maker with a pretty girl as the object. The girl objects and the brilliant way she adopts to outwit the captain and her designing Ma and get the man of her own choice supplies sufficient comedy to consume a long film. It doesn't get dull any of the way, and there is a laugh at the end when the captain discovers that he is attempting to marry the desired bride's brother. The piece is well staged, well acted and in most of the scenes the photography is good. Some of the interiors appear to be a trifle underexposed. The vagaries of an uneven current are sometimes responsible for apparent underexposure, and perhaps that was true in this case. - The Moving Picture World, March 11, 1911
