No more popular fad has ever struck the feminine fancy than the peachbasket hat. This is a creation of headgear that for size outstrips anything yet designed by the disordered mind of the modiste. As a "skypiece" it is a "skyscraper," and in decoration it looks like a combination horticultural and food exhibition. Nevertheless, this mammoth "lid" was seized onto by the feminine world with the avidity of a boy for his first baseball suit. It is only natural that our friend, Mrs. Jones, should experience this obsession, and what woe it preambled! The Jones family are seated at breakfast. Mr. Jones is reading the morning paper. An account of a kidnapping by gypsies engages his attention, and he is filled with horror at the anticipation of the possible abduction of his young hopeful, a baby one year old. He tries to impress Mrs. J., but she is fascinated by the millinery "ads." The situation for Jones becomes more tense when on going outside he sees a couple of the odious gypsies with a ...

Picks up the thread of an old idea
26 November 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

While there is nothing new in the main feature of the plot, the presentation is so cleverly managed and everything appears so real that it proved to be comedy of the kind that wins applause even on a hot evening. As it is next to impossible for the crop of new plots and ideas to keep up with the demand, and the future of the business is threatened by this drought, it is very encouraging indeed to see a company of such prominence as the Biograph pick up the thread of an old idea and weave out of it a clever story with all the ginger, snap and attractiveness of any of their best original sketches. It pleased the audience on this sultry evening, - The Moving Picture World, July 3, 1909
