Storyline

There is nothing left for him but the bread line and the "hump-back" in the "Hotel du Park."

It gets hold of the sympathies as well as makes laughter
2 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Bunny is the rich man of this picture who in a mellow mood gives the hundred dollar bill to the poor bencher. It is a peculiarly jolly, Bunny quality of mellowness that makes the picture delightfully funny. After we've seen the pictures of hard luck we are shown Bunny leaving the place where he has been dining with some friends. A titter of pleasure ripples over the audience as he rises, and it breaks out all over the house as he makes his way out and heavily, as he is, begins to navigate the rolling sidewalk. It's a human picture, for it gets hold of the sympathies as well as makes laughter. He takes the bencher home and gives him the bill that gets him into trouble from which Bunny later rescues him. - The Moving Picture World, August 19, 1911
