Storyline

As a punishment for falling asleep during the Preceptress' lecture, Alice is obliged to remain in her room alone for three days. She becomes restless and seeing some of her schoolmates outside on the campus, gets the janitor to take a note inviting them to come to her room at four o'clock, and have a jolly good time. The four girls, avoiding the vigilance of the Preceptress, appear on time, with smiling faces and "eats." They hear an organ-grinder playing outside; one of the girls darts out of the room and soon returns with the musician. He starts them going with a lively waltz.

The organ-grinder accidentally gives a turn or two of the handle of his instrument which the principal hears and she rushes out for help. In the meantime, the organ-grinder comes out of the closet.

Little attempt to make the action in the scenes seem natural
21 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An artificial farce giving us some boarding school girl capers that are more or less comical, but never afford true comedy. As in nearly all of these school girl or college boy farces. there is plenty of "front and center" acting and little attempt to make the action in the scenes seem natural. There were a good many in the audience, though, that got a good deal of laughter from it and, looking around, we noticed that there were a number who didn't. It was produced by Ralph Ince from Eugene Mullen's script. Flora Finch is the principal and the girls are Rosemary Theby, Lucile Lee, Lillian Walker, Anna Stewart and Edith Story. William Shea and Charles Edward play the roles of organ grinder and janitor respectively. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
