Storyline

Colonel Edward J.

Bruce is in love with Dorothy Cremer to whom he is engaged. The Cremers are entertaining as holiday guests Lord Lonsdale and his sister, Lady Margaret. Knowing nothing of the financial condition of her fiancé, nor of that of his two companions, Dorothy invites them to her home to meet the titled foreigners. The Colonel and the two boys keep bachelor quarters and have only one dress suit among them. After a lively contest for this much prized article the trio make their appearance at the Cremer home.

This picture sets forth the joyous fortunes of three men
13 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Is one of those delightful pictures, that are not too common, in which the natural human being, happy-go-lucky, not very ambitious and, above all, not selfish, is made to come out happily. The reason why the picture of this individual is not common on the films is because he is not only rare himself, but it isn't everyone, in this grasping world of business, who can really imagine such a person or believe sincerely in him. The scenario writer who loves his characters is also in the minority. When such a picture comes, it finds a place at once in the heart and memory of the audience that sees it. There is much talk about fashions in pictures. This is an illusion. The spectator cares nothing for fashion. He wants human things always and knows when he gets them. It is easy to imagine variations without number in the cowboy, girl and sheriff situation; but writers aren't big enough to vary this situation in many ways. There will be no "fashion" in situations depending on character; but they'll be liked when they come, if they come in human guise. This picture sets forth the joyous fortunes of three men, journalists, whom kind fate relieved of hard luck. They were such good friends that they would quarrel just like brothers, and, as pictured, they are very human. These men are played by Charles Clary and William Duncan as publishers of a newspaper in a small city, and better even than these is this editor, played by Frank Weed. Lester Cunio is a convincing type setter on the paper. Walter Roberts, Clara Reynolds Smith, Adrienne Kroell, Harry Lonsdale and Kathlyn Williams also have good parts and add much to the picture. - The Moving Picture World, August 17, 1912
