A light, engaging concoction
25 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This two-reel farcical number is characterized by good photography and breezy acting. The plot will not strike some observers as being worth two reels, but it is a light, engaging concoction and will bring many laughs, Fred Mace is featured as a young man in love with a trained nurse. He feigns illness in order to he taken to her hospital. Later, his friends follow suit. They dance with the nurses and demoralize the hospital staff, the result being that they are ousted from the institution and the nurses suspended for two weeks. Pleasing light comedy. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
