User reviews



This picture play has for its theme the plotting of two firms of contractors to obtain a large contract. The stenographer of one firm is discharged and a stenographer of the other firm volunteers to apply for the position and if successful get information on the figures. Love cuts a figure and plays havoc with the plans. It is an interesting production, taken all in all. The acting by all the cast is meritorious. It is worthy of a place on any program. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
