It has much of the best Vitagraph atmosphere
24 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

One of the first things to be said about this society comedy is that it is charming itself. It has much of the best Vitagraph atmosphere and photoplay frequenters know what that means. The situation develops at a reception in a pretty country house, its music room and library and moon-lit garden outside. The scenes are filled with attractive. well-dressed girls and as many men, but seldom seem crowded. Mamma is so charming that, if she sits down at the piano, the men leave the girls and crowd about to listen and admire. If she goes into the other room they follow. The girls arc in despair and so is one of the men, a middle-aged suitor of charming mamma's. He and they think up a scheme to get mamma away from the boys. One of her two daughters pretends a fainting spell. Mamma comes into the library. She is left there with the middle-aged man while the girls go back to the music room, and then, with the men, out to the garden. While they are out there mamma and her suitor slip away and are married by a minister. The best fun of the picture, and there are many laughs in it, is when mamma returns with a new name to "spring" on the boys. - The Moving Picture World, December 2, 1911
