Storyline

Cupid plays havoc with the hearts of Maude and Powell, but they are so touchy, they never meet unless they quarrel. At the suggestion of Maude's mother to remedy this condition of things, they decide to go away from each other for one week every month. Maude goes to her friend, Margaret, at Willowdale, and Powell to his old chum, Joe, at Harrington. The first night, they are morose and found to be very unsociable by their friends. On the second night the boys sing, "I wonder who's hugging her now." Powell can stand the strain no longer, feigns illness and leaves. Margaret and the girls sing, "Who are you with tonight?" which is the pinnacle of Maude's fears and she takes her departure for home, leaving a note for her hostess. Margaret arrives in Harrington and Powell in Willowdale where each learn by telephone that the other is not there. Full of suspicion, heartbroken and wretched, they return to the hotel where they both live. Maude arrives first, casts herself on the bed in despair... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The orchestra may enjoy the picture more than the gallery
27 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Larry Trimble puts on a delightful comedy, the script of which is written by M.T. Jacobs. Miss Turner and Tom Powers have the roles of married persons who will quarrel. There are good situations; for getting out of these the limit of possibilities, leave it to Miss Turner. Her facial control is shown here at its best, lightning-like changes from laughter to sternness, from affection, when the husband isn't looking, to coldness when he turns his head. In theatrical parlance, the orchestra may enjoy the picture more than the gallery; but the latter will like it. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
