Productive of continuous laughter
A very laughable comedy in which is used the old antiquated idea of the fellow behind the curtain, with a mallet, who delivers the knockout blow. Billy Quirk and Constance Talmadge are featured. The ring scene is productive of continuous laughter, as are the closing scenes wherein Percival, formerly a timid and effeminate youth, after his victory in the ring, becomes a regular "tough un." A comedy of merit. - The Moving Picture World, November 21, 1914
