Most of the fun will come from the antics of the animals
6 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this comedy it is probable that most of the fun will come from the antics of the animals, two of which are featured, a monkey and an elephant. The osculatory feats of the former are bound to convulse any house. The story is of a wife in love with animals and of a husband who abhors them. It is produced by Al Christie. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
