To celebrate his expected fortune, Jake gets drunk. An automobile party of four young bloods happens into the café and Jake tells them, when he falls heir to his riches, he will enjoy himself to the limit and do things in style. On his way home he falls asleep by the roadside. The four young sports whom he met in the saloon, happen that way, and upon seeing his condition, they decide to play a joke on Jake and test his ability to make good in his boasted promise to do things in style. They carry him to the automobile and take him to their swell apartments, put him to bed and then dress themselves as valets and maids.

The situation was old in Shakespeare's time
30 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

While there were very few laughs over this Bunny picture there is much of it truly amusing. The situation is good and the acting of Bunny, at times, hits the mark squarely. The development from the situation was old in Shakespeare's time and has been used in a number of pictures and perhaps this did a good deal to keep laughter down. Bunny is told by a fortune teller that he will soon he rich. He doesn't worry, but gets drunk to celebrate. Some jovial practical jokers take him home and make him think that his fortune has come true and the following evening when he is drunk again take him to his home. The photography is fair. It was produced by Wilfred North. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
