A good, clean story
16 March 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The story of a willful girl who dreams she takes her own way, gets betrayed and tries twice to commit suicide and wakes to find she has nearly broken her head in tumbling out of the hammock. A good, clean story with a moral and an element ot farce in it. - The Moving Picture World, October 24, 1914
