Storyline

Jack Howard, through hard work, has at last placed himself in a comfortable position and finds himself with his dear little wife, Mabel, located in a little apartment with all the comforts of home. He is now ready to enjoy married life; the strain has been too great, however, and he is almost on the verge of nervous prostration, sick and irritable. Mabel tries to cheer and comfort him; she waits on him and is a truly good and faithful wife, very much concerned about her hubby. She insists he must take a vacation, and after he has gotten permission from his employer, and she has packed his grip, he is about to leave home when he thinks of his camera, with which he promises to take some scenes of the location where he will rest and recuperate. When he gets on the train, he happens to meet an old friend, a newspaper man, who has been assigned to a theatrical performance, which is to take place later in the week. They compare cameras and speak of the objects of their trips out of town. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The film is sufficiently amusing to keep the audience in good humor
25 January 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This comedy is based upon the experience of a married man who by mistake exchanges cameras with a reporter friend. The married man, Jack Howard, is played by James Morrison; Mabel, Jack's wife, by Mabel Nelson, and the reporter by Edward Phillips. The playlet is made the more attractive by the few characters included. When Jack's pictures come home his wife sees pictures of women in interesting poses; they are the press pictures of a theatrical attraction. If the reporter hadn't shown up, there would have been a separation. The parts are well played and the film is sufficiently amusing to keep the audience in good humor. - The Moving Picture World, May 27, 1911
