Storyline

The Rev. Jones and his wife awaited the arrival of their son from college with delight. Rev. Jones had a friend of his boyhood days by the name of Smythe who was a business man. Smythe was a man who loved society as did his wife. They had one daughter, Gladys who went to boarding school. She too was expected home. Gladys arrived with two friends whom the friendly Mrs. Smythe soon made comfortable. Soon after, Tom, the minister's son arrived; his friends began to drop in and when Mr. and Mrs. Jones went out to a meeting Tom and his friends indulged in a friendly game of cards and enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

It uses an old idea
19 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

A well conducted picture with some pretty scenes which have been perfectly photographed. It will make good entertainment. It uses an old idea and makes a minister's son come to work in the business of his father's friend in the city. On his arrival, the cards, punch-bowl and cigars are hidden while he hides his cigarettes and his liking for good times. Each half finds the other out in the end. It has been given freshness by the producer and is breezily and naturally acted by Owen Moore and Fritzi Brunette, ably supported by a good cast. - The Moving Picture World, January 25, 1913
