A homely love story
13 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

One of Elizabeth Carpenter's legitimate comedies. Directed by James Young. The cast is as follows: Clara Kimball Young. Charles Eldridge, Lionel Belmore and James Young. There is a rural flavor pertains in this offering that is very pleasant to visualize, and a homely love story which depicts many comical scenes, showing how a willful girl meets her match. Her lover absolutely carries her to a justice of the peace where they are married. Then the trouble begins, but the husband convinces his wife that he is the stronger of the two and she is glad to admit he is the master. This is a splendid picture and receives almost continuous laughter. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
