Fred Mace pitches some woo to lady barber Mabel Normand. Later, she catches him doing the same to Claire MacDowell and begins stropping her razor.
Everyone is dressed in Spanish costume in this Mack Sennett split reel for Biograph, probably so that everyone can behave in a more hot-blooded fashion than usual. Sennett's comedy unit at Biograph was a lot more staid than the sort of slapstick he would produce for his own company. He would leave later in the year for Keystone, taking Mace and Normand with him as his core stock company.
People looking for this split-reel comedy will likely be disappointed in its quality. It does not seem to exist except as derivatives of early paper-print transfers and all of the easily available copies seem identically poor.
