Storyline

Harry Manning is the son of a fashionable family, but on account of money reverses he is compelled to earn his own living. Through the assistance of an old friend he obtains a position as floorwalker in a large department store. The employer, a very wealthy man, has a daughter, who falls in love with Harry, and pursues him, but he, from the serene height of his aristocratic lineage, looks askance at her. She hits on a fine idea. She obtains a photo of him and one of herself and has a double print made, showing them both on the same card. This wonderful scheme falls in its intent, and even makes him more distant than ever. Another wondrous scheme takes root in Ethel's mind, whereby she may be able to obtain her heart's desire. She conspires with two friends to impersonate two sneak thieves. They are to come to the store, steal from her a gold mesh bag in such a manner that Harry can see and capture them.

Ethel Grandin plays the heroine with plenty of dark eyestabs
8 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Gem Company has a brilliant group of comedy players and what they can do is plainly shown in this offering. It is a farce and gets over as pleasurable entertainment on the work of its players rather than on the fun in its situation. As an offering it is good, for it is full of comical individualities, facial twists and mannerisms that are now conventional and now original, but almost always funny. Ethel Grandin plays the heroine with plenty of dark eyestabs with which she drives home comedy or tragedy according to her need. The others are not far behind in their support to her. It is an excellent offering. The tone of the photography is a bit harsh, but the pictures are clear. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
