Storyline

Springtime. Everything in nature is awakening. A pretty girl in a boat is drifting. Sterling sees the girl and becomes infatuated. At the same time another man sees the girl and he, too, falls in love. They pursue her in boats, each unaware of the other. The girl escapes on shore, where the two men meet and the rivalry begins. By a peculiar ruse Sterling manages to best the other rival and win the girl. He brings her to a lawn dance and makes a hit with the guests by bringing such a pretty girl. The other man in the meantime makes the acquaintance of a Salome dancer and surprises the party by appearing with her. The shapely form and grace of the beautiful dancer completely unbalances Sterling's mind and he rushes madly to her. The rival naturally objects and a sword duel is the result. The rivals turn out to be terrible cowards, and the affair of honor turns out to be a fiasco. In the mix-up that results the Salome dancer escapes into a public park, with the park police in hot pursuit... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Crammed with funny situations
19 August 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a two-part rip-roaring comedy that gains hearty and continuous laughter, it is crammed with funny situations and characters and what they don't do in the action of the picture never happened. There is a scantily clad maiden who is some dancer. Ford Sterling is at his best. This strenuous comedy will make any audience laugh like the dickens. The photography is not of the best in some places. - The Moving Picture World, May 30, 1914
