Storyline

Jimmy Little, a reporter for the Daily Howl, is in love. The object of his affections this time is pretty Dorothy Alexander, daughter of a millionaire, and this is the unfortunate part of it, because Dorothy's father suspicions the reporter of wanting the millions more than Dorothy. However nothing could be furthermost in the mind of Jimmy, and on the afternoon our story opens, Jimmy, having received a note from Dorothy to call immediately and ask her father, he leaves the office and takes a car to Dorothy's home. Dorothy and he fearfully approach the old gentleman in his study, but he mercilessly denounces Jimmy as a fortune hunter, and in the end the unlucky suitor is dragged to the door by the butler and pitched out on his ear. Jimmy refuses to accept defeat, scrawls a brief note to Dorothy inviting her to elope with him and sends it in by the maid. Dorothy answers that he must first win her father's consent, and father, coming into the room as she writes, adds a postscript to the ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This comedy is diverting because it is lively
15 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A lively love story, illustrating the resourcefulness of a reporter and how it was turned to good purpose. The old millionaire, who objected to the reporter, was duped into accepting a supposed count as a son-in-law, and great was his surprise to discover that the reporter had outwitted him after all. This comedy is diverting because it is lively. Human nature, the most interesting of all subjects, is apparent all through it, and the result will meet with the approval of motion picture lovers without distinction. A good comedy, full of life, is to be commended always. And in this instance the actors have risen to the occasion and produced something of unusual merit. - The Moving Picture World, September 3, 1910
