When Sidney Smith catches his boss in a compromising situation, John Lancaster thinks Smirh has a camera. Fearful his wife will find out, Lancaster promotes him and tries to get the photos, missing the fact that his daughter and Smith are in a budding romance.
Although Sidney Smith would go on to direct many funny comedies for the Christies, this Selig two-reeler is a dull, predictable affair. Selig was the most conservative of the Patents Trust company, relying mostly on the firm's excellence lenses and processing. Although this might have been handled in a slapstick manner in the style of Sennett, it is not. It might have been a situation comedy, enlivened by amusing performances, but it is far too straightforward d mechanical for any laughs there.
