A lot of funny antics
13 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Chaplin, Conklin and Mabel appear in this interesting bit of nonsense. The chief scenes are taken at an auto race. The gentlemen spill pop over strange ladies and perform a lot of funny antics of an eccentric sort. This is successful in its way. - The Moving Picture World, November 14, 1914
