Good comedy movement and delicate treatment
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A brisk little comedy, enacted by a French company. The flirtation and subsequent quarrel in the restaurant were well handled; also the proposed duel and arrival of all parties at the home of the girl's mother. For good comedy movement and delicate treatment, this offering is very successful. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
