Storyline

Pretty Mary Conway was the belle of the town. Tom and Jim were both striving for her favor, but Tom had the advantage because he owned a rubber-tired buggy and a span of dapple grays, but Jim's day was coming. One day he received a circular advertising an automobile. He lost no time in ordering one of the machines and when it arrived he promptly took a spin around to Mary's home. That fair girl was just about being helped by Tom into his buggy. Tom might as well have had an ice wagon for all the attraction it was to Mary. She made a pretty excuse to him, then Jim had the delight to hand her into his new machine, Mary having suggested that Tom could take her aunt in the buggy. Away spun happy Jim, with Tom and Aunty following at a slower pace. All went well for a few miles and then something went wrong with the automobile. It refused to budge another foot. Jim consulted his instruction book and found that the thing to do was to crawl under the car and tighten up the universal joint. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Even at its best was not very amusing
11 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An old story, "Alkali Ike's Auto," retold in the same way, but not so funny as the former. There is very little that is fresh in this picture. It is the story of a cowboy who bought a motor car, and a girl who jilted another man to go riding with him. The other man follows in his wagon. After the motor car has cut up many highjinks and finally come to rest, he overtakes it and the girl continues her outing in the wagon. It took a weary long while to get started, and even at its best was not very amusing. There was one man who laughed several times, and several who laughed once or twice. At the end, there was a spark that made a ripple of amusement. The show was just getting under way when this film was shown, yet three people left while it was playing. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
