No new situations or fresh characters
A conventional romance with some comedy, as is usual. There is some good character drawing in it. but no new situations or fresh characters or depth of meaning. It is a commercial offering, skillfully put together for the market. The setting is an oil well country, and the farm is going to be sold for a song, but is saved by the "timely interception." The photography is poor for Biograph. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
