A light, pleasing plot
31 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Another good summer story, with a light, pleasing plot. The Count De Chromo wants to marry the girl, who insists upon reading her book all the time. Finally, in order to get rid of him, the girl drops her pocketbook in the boat behind the yacht and sends him for it. When he is in the boat, she casts the rope off and goes on with her reading. Good comedy. - The Moving Picture World, August 30, 1913
