With the departure of Mack Sennett from Biograph for the greener pastures of Keystone, Eddie Dillon became Biograph's leading comedy director, usually under the supervision of D.W. Griffith. I am loath to credit Griffith with any hand in this strange little comedy, because it lacks anything in the way of worthwhile story construction, although it does have the usual Biograph visual look to it -- the famous 'Biograph Right Wall'. The story is a simple one: Sammy works in a sweatshop and loves a pretty girl and she him; but he is pressured to marry his boss' daughter.

A common enough story and situation. So what makes it funny? Every character in it is Jewish. And how do we know they are Jewish? Because everyone has a huge hooked nose, except, of course, for the girl that Sammy is in love with.

Amusing enough in a mildly bizarre way, but it's a single joke that grows old in about thirty seconds.
