On his trip to Europe, Bunny is very much disturbed because he fails to make his usual impression with the ladies. He notices that the captain of the steamer is the real thing with the fair sex and decides it is the uniform that attracts them and that it is the only thing lacking to make him as popular in their estimation as the commander of the ship. He visits the captain's stateroom and borrows, without his knowledge, one of his uniforms. He swells around among the passengers, carries things with a high hand and authority, trying to impress everybody with a sense of his own importance. The captain, learning of Bunny's doings, carries the joke a little further by putting one over on him. He orders his boatswain to arrest Bunny. At the suggestion of Bunny's friend, the captain sentences him to menial servitude, making him assist the cook, peeling onions and potatoes and doing all sorts of culinary work. Afterward he is set to work sweeping the lower deck, very much to the amusement of... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

None but one professional actor appears in it
26 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The writer has awaited the appearance of this picture with much interest, stimulated, he will confess, by listening to a recital of the history of the picture, from the lips of the comedian, The film is the first of the Bunny abroad pictures, taken when the jovial funny man was on his way to England to secure the Pickwick series. It will make much laughter, there's no doubt of that. One feature of this picture which is novel and unusual is the fact that but one professional actor appears in it. This does not militate against the interest of the film. Understanding it, it distinctly adds to the interest. The work of some of the cast will bear comparison with the acting of the real article. Especially is this the case with the three friends. Likewise one or two of the women. In the cast appears the captain of the Berlin, the boatswain, the entire ship's band, several of the crew, some of the steerage passengers, three of the men cabin passengers and a quartet of the women passengers. As the comedy opens Bunny appears on the deck of the ship, disconsolate as he observes the attention that is bestowed by the women on the captain and the unconcern with which they gaze over his own head. He surreptitiously secures a uniform coat and cap from the captain's cabin and dons them. His fortunes change. He strolls up the deck with a woman on each arm. The captain from his cabin window calls the boatswain, and Bunny under arrest. Then he is made to swab the deck, to peel onions and potatoes, and other menial work. He is finally released and restored to good standing. The last scene is on the deck, where Bunny is surrounded by a dozen of his friends. The best of the comedy comes here. One by one they hastily depart. Mal de mer is responsible. Bunny is the last to succumb; he fights hard, but it is no use. - The Moving Picture World, November 2, 1912
