Making its point clearly and effectively
11 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Lois Weber renders the lead in this bright comedy of misunderstandings and she is ably seconded by Rupert Julian as the "wife's friend," a real estate agent who sells her a bungalow which she has planned to give her husband for a birthday present. The latter finding his wife negotiating in great secrecy with the agent grows jealous and out of that situation springs the comedy, a rather good one and making its point clearly and effectively. - The Moving Picture World, December 20, 1913
