    One incident in this picture is rich in comedy and made the audience as a whole roar with laughter. There were some who laughed all the way through; but to many people there is little real fun in seeing a man fly into a temper and perhaps throw a platter across the dining room.

Mrs. Frances Brenon furnished a comedy with something fresh in it and her script was produced by Frederick Thompson. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
