Storyline

Davy Jones is off again, bound for the East. Seated in a cabin with his messmates, Davy listens to the tales of the "harem" skirts, the Sultan's many charming wives. He listens and smokes the Turkish hookah, and gradually falls into a deep sleep, indulging in a pipe dream of love escapades with the inmates of the harem. The thoughts of his delightful dreams are constantly in his mind. He flirts with every veiled female he meets, insisting that they withdraw the covering from their beautiful features, to find a lemon where he expected a peach. Finally he gains access to one of the crows, by whom he is surrounded and ardently wooed, from which there seems to be no possibility of escape.

This time he dreams of the Sultan's harem
3 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It is sometime since Davy Jones appeared to gladden the heart of an audience. In this film he is quite as funny as he was in these which have gone before. This time he dreams of the Sultan's harem and the way he played havoc with the veiled beauties inside. But when he induces them to remove their face coverings the worst lemons in the orchards seem to have fallen to his share. Ultimately there is trouble in the harem. The sultan discovers the interloper and secures immediate divorces by throwing the whole bunch out of the window. Davy jumps out and hurries away to his ship, satisfied that harems are not altogether what they are supposed to be. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
