Storyline

They were the model engaged couple at the summer resort until, well, until they quarreled. They were members of a crabbing party, and May caught the biggest one that had ever been seen at Cape May, but Jack foozled with the landing net and fell overboard. Worse than that, he didn't land May's prize. They argued, and finally the ring was given back by the girl. Both believed that life would never be the same to them again, and perhaps it would not have been, if "little brother" had not wanted a velocipede. "Little brother" was regarded by his sister as a dear, and by Sis's sweetheart as a nuisance. But he offered to square things if Jack would give him funds to buy the velocipede, and Jack eagerly accepted. If you saw the man you love rush wildly into the foaming sea, would or would you not call him back? May did, for she called Jack back, and they were happy ever afterward. He did not deceive her at that, even though he had no intention of committing suicide. Jack later rewarded "... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A light comedy offering
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this courtship William Russell and Flo LaBadie play the leads. The little brother brings them together after a quarrel. The scenes picturing the crabbing expedition were very interesting and will be particularly appreciated by people who have indulged in this sport. A light comedy offering of a pleasing sort. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
