The chase of the elopers by an angry father is trite
3 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

The producer of this picture had a rich comic situation and one not too trite and he had good actors. But his method of conducting it leads one to suspect that he didn't count it really worthwhile. The chase of the elopers by an angry father is trite, but the situation didn't require it. The producer used it and kept it from being trite by trick plays. The father jumps across a sizable river. Some of the comic incidents are too foolish to be funny, as for only one instance, the pouring of milk into the automobile's cooling system. The lovers are married before the father catches them and the groom then shows him his own written opinion, as a lawyer, that a man who loves a girl whose father dislikes him should elope. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
