He purchased the photograph of a well-known actress, suitably inscribed it, and left it in a prominent position on his bureau. A pretty chambermaid saw the photograph, and the news soon spread through the hotel that the supposed bachelor was really a married man.

One of the best resort comedies
31 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best resort comedies we have seen this summer. The bashful bachelor finds himself in a hotel filled with pretty girls. He pretends to be married, placing the photograph of an actress on his bureau. All goes well till the actress shows up at the hotel and of course trouble ensues. A lively and pleasing plot. - The Moving Picture World, August 30, 1913
