Broncho Billy romances are fresh, or at least give the impression of being so
That so many of these Broncho Billy romances are fresh, or at least give the impression of being so, is due perhaps more to the development of the situation, the human freshness in little things, rather than to intricately made, unusual plots. In outline, this typical Broncho Billy love story is not new; but the picture, as a whole, seems new. There are many insignificant things in it that we have never seen before, and they keep pleasing all through the film. We wonder whether the conventional ending is necessary. To the reviewer, who has seen it and sees it every day, it seems very flat. Almost every romance has, in our opinion, just sixteen feet of flat ending. - The Moving Picture World, July 20, 1912
