Storyline

He reluctantly consents, as he is engaged to Evelyn Marshall. While Tom and the chorus girl are dining in the restaurant, Evelyn comes in with a part of friends.

It is clever, but lacks real freshness
1 January 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy revolving around a clever female impersonation. The plot seems to have been built with a view to utilizing the company's available material; it is clever, but lacks real freshness. The situation is kept clear, it is not allowed to drag, and it amuses; but it has no laugh- compelling moments. The acting is fine. Mr. Geo. Cooper plays the "sister"; his work is well known and is good. Mr. Young plays the man who needed a sister, so that his fiancée (Clara K. Young) would believe his excuse. She had caught him in a restaurant with another girl. Miss Walker and Mrs. Gordon also appear in it. The mechanical work and photography are as usual with this make of picture, excellent. - The Moving Picture World, August 3, 1912
