It made many hearty laughs
25 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A fresh, amusing comedy situation is well developed in this picture. Bunny and Kate Price play a couple who object to the lover (Mr. Morrison) of their daughter (Lillian Walker). Bunny has the gout and his bandaged foot couldn't be put in a bushel basket. On the other side of the picture Mr. Eldridge and Mrs. Maurice play a couple who are delighted with the lover (Mr. Powers) of their daughter (Miss Theby). The four young people are friends. With the help of the happy pair, the other pair are planning to elope. Bunny employs a "scream" detective (Mr. Phillips) who gets the wrong couple while the others are at the minister's. It made many hearty laughs. The photography is as usual. - The Moving Picture World, June 15, 1912
