Storyline

When Mabel, an impressionable girl, has her fortune told and is advised she will marry a Turk, she casts off Bob, her sweetheart. Bob plots with his friends to give Mabel a good scare and masquerading as a Turkish Pasha, with his friends as wives he calls on Mabel. Mabel is horrified when introduced to the "harem" and after some difficulty locks the "Pasha" in a clothes-closet and the wives in a bedroom. At this instance Mabel's Italian music teacher arrives. Bob, in the meantime, gets out of the closet and appears mysteriously before Mabel and the Italian in misfit evening clothes. He then makes short work out of the dummy in the "Pasha's" outfit and throws the supposed Turk out of the window. An Italian hand-organ man with a monkey are called in to help get rid of the wives, who are successfully disposed of and Mabel goes to Bob's arms, fully satisfied in getting her old love back.

It is amusing, and there are a few good laughs in it
24 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce-satire, in which a young girl, whom a clairvoyant's cards had foretold would wed a pasha, breaks her engagement and forces her fiancé to dress up as Abdul, a Turk, in order to win her back. Four of Abdul's friends whom he chances to find at the club dress up in women's clothes and follow him to the girl's home as "his harem." Amy handled the situation with a revolver, locked the Pasha in one room and his harem in another. This gave him a chance to change his make-up and, as Jack again, to effect a rescue. The "harem" was disposed of by two Italians, who were admitted to the house. The Turks are at war with the Italians, you remember. It is amusing, and there are a few good laughs in it. - The Moving Picture World, December 2, 1911
