Storyline

The Rev. John Ashton, unmarried, has accepted a call in a village and. with his sister, gives a housewarming. Mary, a young member of his flock, notices during the party, a pair of worn slippers and decides to make him a new pair. Consequently all the village spinsters also make slippers: but those the parson's sister trades off for a bread mixer to an itinerant peddler, who innocently takes them around to the back doors through the community. Mary's slippers are the only ones the minister wears. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Never seemed to catch the large audience as a whole
27 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A little farce of country village life, developing out of the minister's love story. There was some laughter, but the picture never seemed to catch the large audience as a whole, perhaps because there have been too many others that resemble it. The minister is played naturally and pleasingly by Bigelow Cooper, and Elsie McLeod is very sweet and engaging as the girl. Among the spinsters who also send slippers are Alice Washburn, Clara Adams, May Abbey and Florence Coventry. Mrs. Erskine plays the minister's sister. Arthur Housman plays the peddler, who gets the slippers from the minister's sister and tries to sell them in the village. Charles Seay produced it from E.A. Bull's script. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
