Storyline

Rich as the result of a lucky mining strike, Jack Farleigh married Bessie Evans. He did not remain contented with idleness very long, and when Bessie invited some dear friends to visit her, Jack fled in disgust to the ranch, where Mexican Joe and the cowboys soon made him at home once more. Bessie and her friends went touring. An automobile mishap brought Jack to the rescue--also it led to some mighty funny adventures for the auto party, when Jack as a highwayman held up his own friends in his own automobile.

Something out of the ordinary
20 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western picture that is something out of the ordinary is offered by the American Film Company under the title of "Society and Chaps." Jack Farleigh strikes it rich and leaves the ranch for an easier life. He marries Bessie Evans and settles down to a life of ease. His wife entertains Mr. and Mrs. Vandergould and their daughter and her admirer, but Jack has no use for the guests and vows "Never again." Later, when the Vandergoulds propose an automobile tour through the wild country. Jack takes to the woods and leaves his wife to her friends. While the auto tourists are on their way the machine breaks down. Some time is required to make the repairs and the tourists saunter about the woods. Mrs. Farleigh gets lost and is discovered by her husband, who is in wild West attire. Meantime the machine has been repaired and the Vandergoulds attempt to round up their guests. In their session they come upon Mrs. Farleigh struggling in the arms of a person who appears to be a regular highwayman, screaming for help. The highwayman holds the entire party up and produces substantial results. Then Jack discloses his identity and there is a good laugh all around. Mrs. Farleigh decides to remain in camp with her husband and the Vandergoulds go on their way. - The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1912
