An interesting novelty
21 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A unique elopement, in which the bride-to-be rides in an automobile, handcuffed to the detective her irate father sent after her. She gets rid of the handcuff and jumps from one car to another, while both are running at top speed, Lois Weber and Phillips Smalley appear in this offering, which is an interesting novelty. - The Moving Picture World, April 25, 1914
