Storyline

Kitty Perkins is married to Beau Crummel, the village dude, by the Justice of the Peace. As they are coming out of the office of the Justice, they see Kitty's father approaching, and, surmising that he is going to punish them, run away and finally seek shelter in a hotel, where they register under an assumed name, in order to throw the old man off the scent. Kitty goes shopping and upon returning, finds that she has forgotten the number of the room and the fake name. In order to locate the room, she tries first one and then the other. The disturbed guests are resenting the intrusion, when the situation is relieved by the appearance of Beau. The climax is reached when Kitty's father appears. They slam the door in his face and climb down the fire escape, only to be arrested for sneak thieves at the bottom of the ladder and taken into the office of the hotel.

People will probably find it very amusing
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A little burlesque comedy that has merit (plenty of it), but it will make enthusiastic those who compare it with what Edison has often done. It was made for the people and the people will probably find it very amusing. Beau Crummel (Arthur Houseman) has eloped with Elsie MacLeod, and they are needlessly afraid that papa (William Wadsworth) is going to make trouble. It is set in a hotel to which papa is bringing Elsie's grip, left behind. The queer characters are well acted and some of the situations are distinctly good. It gives plenty of broad humor with only a touch of roughness; it has been carefully set and is convincing enough to make many a laugh. The script by Mark Swan, has been produced by C. Jay Williams. The photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
