Storyline

A comedy drama of mediaeval days, when Cupid was obliged to work overtime, and be an inventive genius of subtle powers, resorting to artifice and cunning to work his felicitous plans. In this Biograph story the Duke's daughter is loved by a gallant knight, which love she reciprocates. The Duke, however, favors another and would force her to wed the man of his choice. Preparations are made for the wedding, and it looks as if the poor girl will be made a party of an odious match, but the lover becomes fearless and resorts to trick. With the aid of friends, he seizes the bridegroom that is to be, and assisted by the court barber, makes up to look exactly like him, and thus takes his place at the altar, is married before the deception is discovered. This is one of the most elaborately staged and costumed productions ever made. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Character Development

Although this was only five minutes long, there was no time for character development and I didn't connect with the players that they had to offer. The film unfolds like an Edgar Allan Poe tale rather than a structured story.
