Storyline

Mr. Tibbs is a salesman with the Walk E-Z Shoe Company, and is an enthusiastic admirer of pretty feet. Everywhere he goes he is on the lookout for them, and is thoroughly disgusted when many charming women reveal feet of enormous proportions. One morning, a shoe-drummer leaves a plaster mold of a female foot, beautifully small and charming. It is handed over to Tibbs, who goes into ecstasies, fits a pair of shoes to the model, then puts a large sign in the window offering to give the shoes to any lady able to wear them. During his absence a veiled Venus enters, tries on the shoes and they are found to fit her perfectly. She leaves her own shoes and goes out wearing the new ones. Tibbs returns and, with one of her shoes in his hand, starts out in pursuit of his affinity. For a whole month he searches vainly, hiding under sidewalks and watching the passing feet for a glimpse of his Cinderella, but with no success.

Largely lacked plausibility
7 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce with a first-class and fresh idea. The filling-in, however, largely lacked plausibility. Yet, just as it is, it made many laughs and seemed to be liked. Mr. Tibbs, played by Mr. Steppling, is a shoe store man. He is presented with a plaster cast of a tiny foot, with which he falls in love. The trouble and the fun come from his struggles (they are not always sensible), to find a live girl with such a dainty foot. When he finds the foot and the owner of it is seen without a veil, he is sadly disillusioned. In order to get the idea over with the usual Essanay cast it was necessary to put shoes on the young ladies that were much too large. This shows up too plainly to be convincing. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, August 10, 1912
