Storyline

Bunny and Marsh attend a show and both fall in love with a charming danseuse. They send their cards into the Green Room to her, receive an audience and take her home in a taxi. Her father objects to their attentions and forbids her seeing them again. When her father is absent she sends them each a note to call on her. Bunny gets there first with a five-pound box of candy. While he and Lauretta are tete-a-teting Marsh is announced. Bunny hides behind the portieres. It is now Marsh's turn. He trips in with an immense box of Jacque roses, which he presents with a great flourish and much to do. He is getting on finely when another visitor comes in. Marsh is obliged to hide behind the lid on top of the grand piano, underneath the cover. The third caller is a very tall, handsome young man. To cap the climax her father returns and the last visitor takes refuge under the sofa. His obedient daughter tries to hold his attention.

It made the audience shout with laughter
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Mr. Marshall P. Wilder and Mr. John Bunny are the two bright stars in this sparkling comedy. It made the audience shout with laughter and is easily the best comedy for two weeks. If Bunny, in it, is just a bit funnier than Wilder, it is because he is even funnier than usual, as though Wilder, being near him, like another log, had made him burn brighter. They make a rare combination. Wilder is a 20th century king's jester; a touchstone brought up-to-date, and Bunny, although he is not only full of laughter himself, but the cause of laughter in others, is like Bottom. They never met before. An exhibitor can rely upon this comedy. It has its good scenes and its better scenes; but it will be no disappointment. It can safely be advertised as a house-filling comedy.
