Some excellent winter views
28 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is an amusing film, in which the young married couple quarrel and leave on the same train for Reno to get a divorce. A strange woman gives her baby to the husband while she looks for her boy. The train starts and the baby is the means of reuniting the quarreling couple. Some excellent winter views of Niagara Falls are shown. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
