Miss Roland's abilities in comedy are well known
27 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Miss Ruth Roland leads in this romantic comedy as "the girl." She makes her sweetheart jealous. He is a good amateur sparring artist, and the man he is up against is, although this is not known, the champion middle-weight of the Northwest. The sweetheart conspires to get him into the ring and succeeds, but in the mill the confident sweetheart gets a fearful drubbing and it is all in sight of the girl. Yet, when she finds who the opponent was, she is proud of the showing that the young man made and makes up with him. Miss Roland's abilities in comedy are well known; she alone pulls this picture out of its encumbering obscurity by her amusing facial expression which is as clear as conversation. The picture has too many characters whose place in it is obscure. There are a couple of good sparring contests in it. - The Moving Picture World, June 22, 1912
