Just not all that funny., 9 September 2012
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

Mr. Blackheart (Frank Opperman) has been appointed guardian of a rich young lady. He plans to have his son (Chester Conklin) marry the woman and steal her fortune--though he is already married! Blackheart Jr. soon begins pouring it one strong and tries to make love to the unsuspecting lady. As for the lady, she just seems creeped out by the guy--and you really cannot blame her. When her actual boyfriend arrives, the Blackhearts drive him off and do everything they can to keep them apart. Can the two young lovers make a go of it or will the Blackhearts swindle the poor lass? This is such a prototypical 'Snidely Whiplash' sort of slapstick comedy--with mustachioed villains trying to hurt the sweet lady. However, it's also not all that funny. Worth seeing if you are a silent addict, otherwise Mack Sennett made better stuff.
