A good romance
3 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pretty little story written by Lois Weber, with Ella Hall and Phillips Smalley in the leads. The princess, in love with a supposed country swain, rebels when her grandfather insists upon her marriage to Lord Burleigh. The observers share her delight when it is discovered that they are one and the same. A good romance, well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, March 14, 1914
