Joel Montrose, a young blacksmith, loves Irene Hughson, the village belle.

Modern "Comedy of Errors"
17 February 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A man almost makes a bigamist of himself through an item in a newspaper in which there is a typographical error. The word "divorced" being substituted for "devoted." Thinking he is really divorced he almost marries another, but escapes by the skin of his teeth. This is a sort of modern "Comedy of Errors," labeled a drama. - The Moving Picture World, September 26, 1914
