One of the old fashioned acrobatic pictures
Anyone that is fond of seeing boisterous, rough-and-tumble comedies can certainly have their appetites satiated, as this is one of the old fashioned acrobatic pictures. There are some of the ridiculous scenes that gain laughter. The caricature make-ups and the repetition of scenes disgust rather than amuse. A.D. Hotling as the author and Frank C. Griffin, director, are responsible for this production. - The Moving Picture World, October 24, 1914
