A superior comedy
26 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A new version of the celebrated Edison comedy in two parts, directed by Charles H. France. The leading characters are played by Gladys Hulette, Harry Eytinge, Cora Williams, Richard Tucker, Gertrude McCoy and William Bechtel. Nellie woke up and discovered that the mortgage had been renewed on their home and that she and Joe would not have to work for their living after all. A superior comedy, well produced and out of the ordinary run of pictureplays. - The Moving Picture World, August 15, 1914
