Isaac Dillon gets a telegram. If he gets married immediately, he will get some money. He proposes hastily to a couple of young woman, who turn him down, so a male friend borrows his wife's dress for the ceremony.
I saw this short comedy at the Eye Institue site on YouTube, the last of six short subjects which involved men wearing women's clothes for comic effect. The print is in good shape and is nicely tinted, but the constant repetition of the single gag had worn thin by the time I got to this one. In addition, the story-telling technique is pretty primitive for 1912. If you wish to look at funny movies of men in women's clothing from that year, I suggest you take a look at the John Bunny comedies in the series. This one is worthwhile only as an historic artifact.
