Pleasingly presented
5 May 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy number, written by Ruth Ann Baldwin. The girl and her lover become separated and she becomes a park nurse. A little girl steals the baby and turns it over to the hero. In the search for the baby the girl and her lover are reunited. This is pleasingly presented and well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, November 28, 1914
