John Bunny wants a smoothly run office. However, his stenographers are pretty young women who chew gum and are more interested in chewing gum and flirting with his young clerks than taking business dictation. In desperation, he hires Flora Finch, but while she doesn't flirt with the clerks, she does with Mr. Bunny.
John Bunny was Vitagraph's biggest star and the leading comedy star in America before Charley Chaplin. With his Pickwickian appearance and long stage experience, his antics -- particularly those with Miss Finch -- were enormously popular.
This is a fine example of the situational comedy that his movies offered. It also offers a large sampling of the pretty ingenues that Vitagraph had under contract, including Clara Kimball Young, Norma Talmage and Lillian Walker. A handsome copy is available for viewing at the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
