Wally Van pays a bit of attention to Flora Finch, a chorus girl (!) in a stage show. His friends hire a simply enormous fellow to force him to do the right thing by her.
This Vitagraph comedy looks as if it was originally planned to be a John Bunny team-up with Miss Finch, but Mr. Bunny always had a bright eye for the pretty girls in the movies, so little Wally Van, always a dependable comic actor for Vitagraph got the part. While everyone has their moments,this one seems to be a little slow; Mr. Van is a bit too straightforward for the rococo elaborations that might make his performance funnier.
If you wish to see this one, there is a handsome print on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
