This comedy short was shown on TCM a several weeks back to highlight gay folks in early Hollywood. The title character in this short (and various other films shown) isn't out and out gay but is shown (in the writer's words) as a "sissy". Algie wants to marry a woman but her father says no because the young man is too much of a sissy but the father tells Algie that he can marry the daughter if he turns himself into a man within one year. The writer of the book and the one who introduced the film makes a lot of examples of why this character is gay but the film itself really isn't anything special as there are no laughs anywhere to be had.
