Storyline

Charley Wise with a Waldorf appetite on a beany salary finds himself growing unpopular with his landlord as well as other creditors. In fact the sighing breezes seem to whisper "Charley it's your move." So together with Pete, his valet, they decide upon a visit to the country to spend a few days with the rich old uncle. Upon their arrival they find Uncle Jim and Sarah are just planning a trip to Europe and the timely arrival of Charley renders it unnecessary to close up the home as he is placed in full charge with faithful Pete as his assistant and Jim and Sarah are off for the other side. Charles repairs to the race track and donates the remaining fragments of his bank roll, to the other man's better judgment. Pete hits upon a plan to open the palatial home of the uncle as a sanitarium and thus collect a few of the shining shekels that health seekers are always anxious to let loose of.

Almost one continuous laugh
15 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

The young man who transformed his uncle's palatial residence into a sanitarium and the calamity which compelled him to pay back the money his patients gave him, are so graphically told in this picture that one is almost ready to sympathize with him. Misfortune seemed his lot and his woebegone looks after the last dollar has been paid back and the last patient has departed, and the telegram comes saying that his uncle will not be back, would melt the most stony heart. The picture is acted with spirit and the personality of the Selig players pervades it so strongly that it is especially attractive. It is a comedy which develops its humor through unexpected situations and good acting, and the result is almost one continuous laugh. - The Moving Picture World, October 22, 1910
