Storyline

Mr. and Mrs. Jones, while returning from market, meet a crowd in front of the village store, lionizing Mr. Smith, who is credited with having captured a burglar single-handed. Mr. Jones is a very much henpecked man and his wife tells him that Smith is the kind of a man to have around the house. That night burglars invade the Jones home. Mrs. Jones forces her spouse, much against his will, to go downstairs. He goes and creeps outside of the house to avoid coming in contact with the men. By the merest chance the burglars are frightened and run, leaving their loot behind them. Then a brilliant idea strikes Jones. He covers himself with dirt and bringing the bag of sliver back to his wife, tells her that he had to fight with six desperate men. His fame as a hero soon makes him the biggest man in town, and he is not slow to take advantage of his exalted position to lord it over his now submissive wife.

Quite pleasing
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Good photography makes this half-reel offering quite pleasing. The husband scares away the burglars and tells his wife a great story of his bravery. Just an ordinary comedy. - The Moving Picture World, November 29, 1913
