Storyline

John Morgan is a grouch. His stenographer, Kate, let him rave until one day when it was cold and he insisted upon having the window open right over her head, her patience gave out and she simply told him in a very emphatic manner that "she would not freeze to death for any man." She was dismissed from his employ. A few days before this a girl named Nan Keyes applied for a position in the office. Kate told her there was no opening but John Morgan upon entering the room heard Kate's remark and immediately found a position for Nan in the stock room to take the position of shipping clerk which had been held by Dan whom Morgan put back in the shipping room with the other boys. Immediately upon Kate's dismissal from the office Nan was asked if she could do stenography and as she could she was taken into the office to work.

Naturally acted and very interesting
23 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

A comedy of character in an office life setting with the boss as a most pronounced type of grouch. It is pretty well made, naturally acted and very interesting. Owen Moore plays the grouch who makes life burdensome for his stenographer till she rebels. Fritzi Brunette, whom (in the picture) it has already been shown has a temper of her own, is promoted to be office stenographer and the boss, meeting his match, doesn't know why he doesn't fire her. The ending, in which he compels her to marry him by a threat of imprisonment (she had sent her fatter with some money belonging to the boss and he had stolen it) fails to convince and is the weakest part of a good picture. - The Moving Picture World, January 11, 1913
