Storyline

The title of this Biograph subject would seem paradoxical, but nevertheless it is true that an affair of the greatest moment came out of this case of toothache. Bessie, the new school teacher, arrives at the little western village, and on her way to the school she meets a gang of cowboys, who having heard of her coming, arc spruced up and vie with each other in their attentions towards her. Tom, the "boob," is always frozen out, but manages to land eventually. Boxes of candy and other little offerings are bestowed, until the girl is seized with a jumping toothache. Each one suggests a cure, but without success. The boys depart grief stricken at their inability to relieve her suffering. Tom now appears and offers a cure. He leaves her a note stating if she will submit to his treatment he will guarantee to cure her toothache. She is in such agony that she is inclined to submit to anything, and so, though not knowing what the cure may be, consents. After great preliminaries Tom ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

All men would turn dentists
19 September 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good bit of comedy, but it is to be feared that should the toothache cure here indicated become general all men would turn dentists. Who was the lucky one, aside from Tom, the butt of everybody's jokes, no one seems able to determine. Anyhow the toothache stopped. Tom succeeded in implanting a resounding smack where you can see for yourself it did the most good, since the pain ceased and the sufferer made things jingle for a few minutes. And now the bells will shortly ring, proving conclusively that a girl seldom actually kills a man who has the effrontery to kiss her. Perhaps she considers another method of getting revenge more effective, and the punishment, if it is a punishment, longer continued. - The Moving Picture World, October 29, 1910
