Storyline

A very pretty girl came to the summer resort hotel. Three bachelors, who had been idling away their time at the resort, brightened up perceptibly, and laid plans to make her acquaintance. But unfortunately, the girl chanced to pass as they were discussing the details and overheard them. The first man "sprained" his ankle. The girl and her aunt helped him tenderly to the hotel. The "sprain" ceased as soon as the two women left him. The second man "accidentally" hit the aunt in the back while golfing. He was a good golfer and the ball struck her where he had intended it should, right between the shoulder blades. He profusely apologized and was forgiven, incidentally making the girl's acquaintance.

A beautifully pictured light comedy
21 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a beautifully pictured light comedy which gets over nicely. Flo La Badie arrives at the big California hotel with her aunt, and three men immediately lay plans to strike up an acquaintance. All succeed, but the bird finally flits away, and they discover she is a great writer looking for material. The disconsolate poses at the last of the film are very effective. A good offering. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
