Storyline

A Federal and Confederate veteran, in view of a prospective marriage uniting their families, become fast friends. One plays the fiddle, the other the flute, but they cannot harmonize on tunes, as one demands "Yankee Doodle" and the other insists upon "Dixie." This trouble grows so acute that the innocent young people become involved in the controversy and their engagement is broken. Love finds a way, and they arrange for a secret marriage. The good parson plans it even more wisely, asking the fathers to come and make music for a wedding, not naming the contracting parties. When the ancient enemies find themselves face to face they are mad, but unwilling to retreat; they turn back to back and make music with a vengeance, utilizing the favorite tunes while the ceremony is in progress. When they face the bride and groom and see who is there, they are vastly provoked, but the diplomatic parson, having them both under his spell, patches up peace.

The outcome of the situation is quite fresh
8 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

The audience watched this picture for the sake of its story and, at its comedy ending, got a hearty laugh. Hobart Bosworth enacts a Southern colonel who plays the violin and whose friend (William Hutchinson), late of the Union army, plays the flute. One has a daughter (Eleanor Blevins), the other a son (Robert Grey), engaged to each other. The fathers fall out over which tune they are to play together, and for a time this separates even the young couple. The outcome of the situation is quite fresh. It is acted well by Mr, Bosworth and fairly by the others. Mr. Hutchinson's facial expression is thrown on the screen for a few seconds, and this adds something worthwhile. A. Ernest Garcia plays the parson who performs the marriage ceremony, and Lillian Hayward, his wife. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
