Storyline

Earl Whitney, a reporter, is assigned to get a story on Miss Mirian Chetwood, who, through the will of her eccentric father, is obliged to seclude herself from the opposite sex until she is of age. Whitney finds the house and gets a glimpse of the girl. He is soon chased from the premises by one of the old maid aunts who guard the girl. In running away an accident befalls him. He is brought into the house and locked in a room. Finally he succeeds in getting into a conversation with the girl who tells of her father's will. Whitney soon learns that the age for a girl to marry is 18 and not 21, as he supposed, and after being told by Mirian that she is eighteen, he declares his love for her to the two aunts, who regretfully grant it.

Pleasing because it is not permitted to drag
4 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

A comedy built of improbabilities, but pleasing because it is not permitted to drag; the players are pleasant and intelligent and the photography good. The girl, by her father's will, had to be kept secluded and away from all men until she was of age. Two maiden aunts saw to her bringing up. The story got about and a reporter was sent to write her up. He managed to get the interview and was "the fir»t man" she had talked with. The interview was a very short one, but Cupid seems to have made good use of it. A convenient accident at the gate brings the man back to the home as an injured fellow mortal whom the two aunts cannot turn away. Love knows no ban. The girl was eighteen; she supposed she had to wait until she was twenty-one before she came of age, but the young man taught her and the aunts that this wasn't necessary. - The Moving Picture World, December 23, 1911
