Storyline

Because John isn't soulful and doesn't like the superfluous amount of hirsute appendage of a pianist, the portrait of which is displayed in a window, Jessie, his sweetheart, gives him back all his presents. To show that he doesn't care, John does likewise. They part but are very unhappy, particularly John, as he feels that he is more to blame for his hasty action. At the wedding of one of their friends they meet. Jessie is the bridesmaid and John the best man. After the ceremony the groom invites John to visit his country home. The same invitation is extended to Jessie by the bride. Arriving at the house before the host, they are mistaken for the newly married couple by enthusiastic neighbors and are greeted with a shower of rice. Jesse's icy attitude is thus melted and she decides that John's hair and eyes are very nice indeed. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
