Storyline

Seeing Cutey play the part of a maid of all work at a college play, Alys Trevor seeks an introduction to him and they soon become good friends. She takes him with her to present him to her mother, whom she finds talking to a stranger, Lord Goodbluff. Mama does not seem very pleased to meet Cutey. Later Cutey calls at the Trevor house to see Alys and meets Goodbluff there, who soon quarrels with him. Mrs. Trevor, entering in the midst of the dispute, requests Cutey to leave the house and apologizes to Goodbluff for the young man's behavior. Then she sends a note to Cutey, telling him that her daughter is no longer free to receive his calls. By a strange occurrence, Cutey's suspicions of Goodbluff are aroused and he determines to watch him. Noticing an advertisement in the paper for a maid of all work, inserted by Mrs. Trevor, he obtains the necessary disguise and applies for the position, which he gets. On two occasions he is able to interrupt Goodbluff just as he is on his knees ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Wallie Van, as Cutie, does a good female impersonation
15 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Some extremely able acting gives much quality to this picture of which the story, though, fair and effectively handled, is along well trodden lines. Courtenay Foote, as Lord Goodbluff, an aristocratic scoundrel who is making a social splurge in the town, gives one of his characterizations that hide his personality, his age, his natural walk and demeanor completely, Mr. Foote is a very finished player. Wallie Van, as Cutie, does a good female impersonation. As serving maid at the Trevor's where he had been asked not to call any more, because Mrs. Trevors (Louise Beaudet) wanted her daughter (Zena Keefe) to marry the lord, he does some detective work and gets the noble lord arrested. As a picture, it held the audience and will go well everywhere. The photography is a bit harsh and doesn't do justice to the faces, but the scenes are very pretty. The script is by J.V. Hurley, and Larry Trimble produced it. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
