  • Good comedy. The picture, the work of the Paris studio, is excellently put on. Mr. Whiffles has a sweetheart, Mme. Bonafait, who has the Napoleonic hobby. Whiffles smashes a bust while visiting his intended, but shortly afterward receives word that his uncle has left him a legacy of a bust of the Little Corporal. Delighted, Whiffles dreams he is Napoleon, his valet is an Oriental servant; he interviews three of his marshals and reviews the Old Guard; the sweetheart becomes the Empress and has her Ladies of the Court. There is a fine bit of absurdity when "Boni" and his marshals go to call on the Empress in an automobile. The keener the house the stronger will this comedy go. - The Moving Picture World, August 30, 1913
