Storyline

Two rivals for the hand of a girl are having a fine time stealing marches on each other, and on this occasion they are invited to a whist party at the demoiselle's home. In the course of the evening one of them is very much tortured by a shoe that was never intended for his foot, and when he is seated at a table he takes advantage of the opportunity to remove the tight shoe. Soon the company is called to supper, and the shoeless man is in a fine fix. He gropes frantically for the footwear, and the guests discover his predicament. He is flustered, but not for long. Remembering that his rival was near the table, he gets an idea. Telling the guests that he will find the shoe through a trick in clairvoyance, he furrows his brow and apparently thinks profoundly, makes a few mysterious passes, and suddenly counts four on his fingers. Then he quickly counts off four people to the right; it is his rival! The company looks on in amazement as he turns him round and extracts the shoe from his ...

A series of amusing complications
27 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It may, perhaps, be imagined what a predicament a man could be put in if he was suddenly called to supper in a company and had his shoe off. And it would be worse if his rival in the young woman's affections had purloined the shoe. Here is the whole comical complication admirably worked out. Perhaps the best part of it is the pretended clairvoyance by which the missing shoe is discovered in the rival's pocket. The acting is alive and there is a series of amusing complications which keeps the audience laughing most of the time. The photography is clear, even in some of the more difficult scenes. Altogether it is a satisfactory picture. - The Moving Picture World, April 2, 1910
