Storyline

Carroll Fleming refuses to allow Chappie to court his daughter and thereby incurs the young man's enmity. Chappie places an advertisement in the paper, stating that Fleming's daughter is desirous of marrying a handsome young man, and that she will bring a handsome fortune as a dowry. All kinds of suitors put in an appearance. The father places an advertisement and is engaged. Father discovers him without his wig, and attempts to kick him out of the house, but instead Chappie locks him up in a cupboard and the police who have been summoned, take the old man in charge while the young couple are being married. When he finds he has been outwitted, he gives the happy pair the usual blessing. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

John Cumpson does a female impersonation in a farce comedy
21 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

John Cumpson does a female impersonation in a farce comedy. He is in love, and things come his way so well that he is able to secure a position as chaperon in the family of his sweetheart. The father of the young woman, however, discovers the imposition and telephones for the police. Before the bluecoats arrive, father has been thrown into a closet and locked in. The alleged chaperon and the daughter in the meantime are on the way to the minister, the chaperon getting back to his usual togs en route. Father is being taken away by the police as a real burglar, and appeals to the returning couple to identify him. He yields his forgiveness and blessing willingly. There are some amusing situations. - The Moving Picture World, August 31, 1912
