Storyline

George, a somewhat "unathletic" young man, falls for Clarice, a healthy, athletically inclined young woman. Unfortunately for George, however, a strapping, musclebound stud is also after Clarice, and she seems to prefer him to George. After reading an article by a female writer saying that women prefer the "caveman" type of man, George decides that if that what it takes to get Clarice, then that is what he will be.

This makes many real laughs
19 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story of the effect of elemental ideas, such as are set forth in dime novels, on a man of not very strong individuality. King Bagott plays this man. At first he tries to act a sissy boy, a thing he, with his facial expression and bearing, finds quite impossible to make real. However, his very lack of success adds to the fun and this is a farce comedy. He is shown as taking exercise and hardening up to the point of being like a bag of nails, and all for the sake of the girl; but no one will blame him for his taste. He runs off with her to the parson's, like a cave man.. It is all right. The camera work is good. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
