After another losing night of cards, he promises his wife that he'll never play again, but then one of his friends helps him pretend that he is just going to club meetings on Wednesday nights. When Mrs. Brown figures out what he has been up to, she and her cousin come up with a plan that they hope will cure Mr. Brown of his poker playing once and for all. Written by Snow Leopard

Early American Funny Man is worth a look.

I saw a nice Blackhawk print of this film not too long ago. It is a good representation of John Bunny's comic persona. He was a very heavy set man and was frequently paired with very slender ( and a good bit taller) actress Flora Finch as his wife. The films they made together were often referred too as Bunnygraphs( A play on the title of DW Griffith's Biographs). A Cure for Pokeritis runs about 11 minutes or so when projected at silent 18 frames per second speed. It is a cute little film and some of John's facial expressions are quite funny. This is worth seeing if you are interested in early American cinema comedy and would like to see something from a star that PRE-DATES Charlie Chaplin.
