Shot in Niles, CA, this film marks the 100th anniversary of Edna Purviance’s first appearance onscreen.
Even though she is adorable in the film, Edna herself didn’t think much of her performance:
“…before I began to be a picture artist, I had thought myself gifted with a little more than ordinary intelligence. After the first day in front of the camera, I came to the conclusion that I was the biggest ‘boob’ on earth.
“Charlie was very patient with me, though, and after my first picture, in which I think I was terrible–‘A Night Out,’ you know–I began to get used to the work, and although I have had occasional relapses, as Charlie calls them, I am at least ‘camera-wise’ by now.” (Pictures & The Picturegoer, May 6, 1916)
