Made very little laughter
3 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A dull offering which made very little laughter. When J. Lackaye mends the clock it goes backward; but that was the only real laugh in the picture this morning. There is a bit of acting in poor taste which made one or two laugh. Flora Finch has a role. F. Thompson produced it from the script of Eliza Harrel. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
