Storyline

Huntington Morgan, a leading man "out of work," finds himself one day penniless and breakfast-less. This is his lucky day, however, and fortune leads him straight to a wallet containing several hundred dollars in greenbacks. The wallet was dropped by footpads, who had held up a wealthy real estate man named Aleshire. In the wallet is Aleshire's address. Aleshire, however, has recently rented his townhouse to a spinster, Miss Mahaffy, and has moved to a suburb. Overjoyed at his find, Morgan crosses the street toward a restaurant to stay the pangs of hunger. He is knocked down and rendered unconscious by a passing automobile. The owner of the car finds Aleshire's address in the wallet, concludes that the victim is the owner of the name, and forthwith transports him to the Aleshire townhouse. Miss Mahaffy is out. A maid, who has just been hired that day, allows the frightened car owner to deposit the injured actor in Miss Mahaffy's bed. Miss Mahaffy soon returns. Also Mr. Morgan awakes. ...

The characters are introduced too obscurely
31 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It is hard to get the story of this picture clearly before one until it is over. The trouble is that the characters are introduced too obscurely. The hero is, we see, an actor, but we didn't know it till we read the synopsis. There are gaps in the action, too. and this is annoying. It is well acted and the photography is clear, Thomas Santschi plays a well dressed man who takes care of his clothes and has an adventure which makes him money enough to buy a square meal. Lillian Hayward plays a spinster who seems to have fallen in love with him. Frank Clark, Fred W. Huntley, Wheeler Oakman, Geo. Gaffney and Lillian Clark do good work in their roles. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
