Jealousy is thoroughly enjoying itself
27 January 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy of modern life brightly conceived and cleverly acted. It deals with the amusing adventures of two families, both of which are broken up by divorce, and the several parts reunited crosswise, so to speak. They two families hadn't known each other before, but after the remarriages, fate throws them together in the same house. Jealousy is thoroughly enjoying itself in that house when the woman who had been mother-in-law to the first and was now mother-in-law to the second, descends upon them. A thunder storm is said to clear the atmosphere: The picture is skillfully made, well photographed, and will furnish excellent entertainment. King Baggott and Susanne Willis are the first couple when the picture opens, with Wm. R. Day and Violet Horner playing the other couple. - The Moving Picture World, September 7, 1912
