User Reviews

Better than most feature offerings
15 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

It is surely a winner. It can't be described, but there is nothing at all offensive in it; it is all laughable, and a very desirable release. Charles Chapman and Mabel Normand are at their best and everyone knows what that means; better than most feature offerings from an exhibition viewpoint. This kind makes 'em come again soon. - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
