Storyline

The rich banker cries "revenge." May meets Dan, the engineer, and the meeting is witnessed by the outraged banker, who persuades the haughty railroad president to fire Dan.

The characterizations are rough and lack refinement
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Low comedy with a good burlesque idea, which brings forth much laughter. The characterizations are rough and lack refinement; one of the minor characters was allowed to spit frequently and copiously before the camera. These lapses in humor tend to make this class of films unacceptable to the best houses. This will pass for successful burlesque with less particular audiences. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
