She imagines him to be a rough cowboy and refuses until her chaperone. Miss Prim, prevails upon her to investigate before deciding. Far from being a westerner, Billy is an eastern college chap. He receives the same information as Betty, feels certain she must be an uncouth cowgirl, but Bunny. his tutor, advises him to see the affair through. By chance, Billy, Bunny, Betty and Miss Prim all take the same train, and after some amusing incidents, the four become well acquainted. The two young people fall in love, as do Bunny and Miss Prim.

The plot is a splendid one
2 November 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There are many laughable situations in this comedy, written by Elaine Sterne, and produced by George D. Baker. John Bunny and Flora Finch have the leading parts. The plot is a splendid one for comedy purposes, most of the scenes taking place on a Pullman car and a diner on an overland train. Going, they start as strangers; returning, they are all married. See the picture and you will enjoy a good laugh. - The Moving Picture World, July 18, 1914
