Storyline

James Morton has always lived with his sister, Martha, their mother dying when he was young. Martha is seven years his senior, and has spoiled him, waiting on him hand and foot, until he has become at the age of fifty, a perfectly unbearable old tyrant, utterly selfish. Dr. Goodwill, a friend of the family's, remonstrates with her for humoring him; she declares he was left in her charge by her mother, and she cannot be unkind to him. Their uncle dies and leaves Martha a small annuity. The moment her brother hears of it, he wishes to lay out the money as he thinks fit. This is the last straw. Goodwill interferes and Morton orders him from the house. Goodwill finally persuades Martha that it is her duty to teach Morton a lesson, so she leaves him, saying that as he is dissatisfied with the way she runs his house, he had better try it himself. She has no sooner gone than his servants give him warning and leave, and he tries to run the house alone, getting into all sorts of complications.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
