Storyline

Monsieur Daube was not generally popular in the boarding house. To begin with, he was a foreigner. Worse yet, he was an artist. And worst of all, at least according to Jimmy Wilson's views, Monsieur Daube was in love with Effie, the daughter of the landlady. Effie's mother was the only person in the house who really liked the artist. She thought he was so "refined" and she felt quite sure he was "genteel." He seemed to her an almost ideal person for a son-in-law. Since the landlady was a person who believed in speaking her mind, she made no bones of telling Effie exactly what she wished in this respect. Effie was a mild little person, but underneath her calm exterior she had a will of her own. She did not in the least intend to marry Daube, and she did intend to marry Jimmy Wilson, but she said nothing and let things progress naturally. One day Jimmy won a magnificent ring in a raffle. He promptly brought it home to Effie, but since it did not fit her, took it away with him again. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A rather ordinary plot
30 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A farce of rather ordinary plot and general trend; it made a little laughter. There are one or two fine scenes, especially so is that of the youth out on the fire escape in the pouring rain. Bliss Milford is the author and the producer is Charles France. - The Moving Picture World, April 4, 1914
