The Affair of an Egg (1910)
A whimsical farm girl writes a message on an egg that finds its way to a city restaurant where it is served to a young man. Intrigued, the young man sets out to locate the message-writer. He makes the long and arduous trip by train to the country and confronts the young woman, who, much to his dismay, doubles up her fists and hits him. The next scene shows the young man boarding a train, and the young woman on her knees beseeching him to return to her.- Written by Library of Congress paper print directory
A romantic rustic maiden, while gathering the fruit of the nests for market, conceived the bright idea of sending a tender missive with her name and address on one of the eggs, relying upon Cupid delivering it to the affined one. But Cupid fell asleep at the switch, and the next we see of the egg is when it is served at a restaurant to a young man. Espying the writing thereon, he at once repairs to the address given. At this address he meets an old maid of fifty, fondling a cat. To his query she answers that the lady in question resides here and that she is the lady. No. this is not possible for the lady he asks for is the one whose name is written on the egg. Here is where the romance is scrambled, for she tells him that she wrote that when she was a girl many years ago. You see the poor maiden knew nothing of cold storage where the egg had reposed all those years.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
