There will be many hearty laughs
8 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Flora Finch does fine work in this suffragette comedy. Her excursions into feminine politics leaves husband Bunny in the lurch. There will be many hearty laughs as the worm turns and the whip falls into his hand. Bradley Vandawater writes the script and George D. Baker produces it. - The Moving Picture World, August 2, 1913
