Storyline

Mr. Pest is a certain type of nuisance with whom you are all more or less familiar. A silly egotist with an exaggerated notion of his own importance, be believes that every woman he meets will fall an easy victim to his charms. As our story opens Mr. Pest is seen parading a fashionable drive watching his chance to make a mash with some fair damsel. An opportunity comes at last, but the young lady is far from won by his smirking smile and walks away with a defiant loss of her head. Mr. Pest makes another attempt but is soundly slapped for his troubles. Not daunted by this the masher approaches a third young woman and makes his annoying advances despite her threats to summon a policeman. Finally, however, the young lady's eyes light and she turns to the masher with a smile that means acquiescence. Certainly, she will be pleased to have Mr. Pest's company. Then she goes on to explain that she has some shopping to do and would Mr. Pest be so kind as to help her home with her things. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Mr. Pest is a sight as he follows the young woman
15 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The education of a specimen of the genus masher is made the important feature of this film, and when the delectable young woman finishes Mr. Pest's course of instruction he is quite ready to admit that experience makes a business of teaching and that her lessons are seldom forgotten. Mr. Pest is a sight as he follows the young woman from store to store and is transformed into a pack animal for bringing home her purchases. And then, after all that, when he arrives at her home her athletic husband is waiting for him, equipped with the paraphernalia of prompt ejection down four flights of stairs. Mr. Pest makes his ignominious exit in a tangle of hose and immediately swears an oath never to tempt fate in the form of a pretty woman again. - The Moving Picture World, October 22, 1910
