When he catches her by the collar and shakes her, she pulls away from him and her hat falls off and her long hair falls about her shoulders. He is surprised to learn that she is a girl.

There is not a dull moment in this fine comedy
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Don't again say a woman can't hit that at which she aims. Clara Young, playing the tomboy, aims a half loaf of bread at the head of Flora Finch, and hits the mark. There is not a dull moment in this fine comedy. Mrs. Gordon, as the straight-laced aunt in her prim attire and great eyeglasses, is at her best. Miss Finch, as an extremely proper maid, is as funny as ever. Miss Young? She is improving steadily. There is no longer any ground for belief that she is indifferent or lacks enthusiasm. The finish is a sure laugh-maker. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
