Storyline

One faction of the Ladies' Culture Club favors the election of Mrs. Blenkinsop and the other that of Mrs. Minxton, rival candidates for the presidency. The rivalry is greatly increased when Mrs. Minxton's cook leaves and she lures away Mrs. Blenkinsop's "jewel of a cook," by the promise of better wages, etc. Mrs. Blenkinsop goes to the agency and hires Belinda, a colored girl, who formerly worked for Mrs. Minxton.

There was much hearty laughter
15 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture with an actor proof situation at its climax and with a very well played climax, for the fun at that point depends most on Jane Fearnley and Mandy Wilson (colored and fat) and both of these with the ladies' tailor (Albert Roccardi) are very amusing in their roles. Roy McCardell, the author, made good use of an idea which is not new at all, but, nevertheless, very laughable. There was much hearty laughter while it was on, and it makes good as a comedy offering. Wilfrid North produced it. - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
