Tony Guardio, the handsome barber, is bewailing his lack of trade, and there comes to him Marion Trevor, a very pretty girl, who asks to open a manicure stand in his barbershop. Tony cannot see where her customers are to come from, but impressed by the girl's charms, he consents. One of Tony's regular customers, a young gentleman of a wealthy family, named Edward Robbins, after once looking upon Marion, readily consents to be manicured. His effort at conversation with her inflames Tony to jealous rage. Edward goes home, but can think of nothing but the girl. His father is greatly alarmed over his condition, but the boy tells him that all he needs is occupation. He returns the next day to the barbershop laden with roses, which he sends in to Marion.

It's a farce that will make a good program filler
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very lively barber shop story in which Mabel Trunnelle plays the part of a pretty manicure lady. She applied to the barber for table room in the shop. This was very quickly granted. A young man, son of a wealthy family, came in for a hasty shave. The barber's attention wasn't on his business. The young man got soap in his eye and also in his mouth. The real fun begins after the young man has noticed the manicure lady. The barber gets so jealous that he sells the shop to the young man and then he wants it back. Then there is a wedding. Papa objects to this. In the last act papa looks in through the window. There's a bomb sizzling on the barber's chair, left there by the jealous barber. Papa gives the alarm. The young man runs after the fleeing barber. The bomb is thrown out by the lady and papa falls limply into the chair to be soothed by the new daughter-in-law. It's a farce that will make a good program filler. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
