Storyline

Ruth finds a catalogue issued by the Smokem Tobacco Company, announcing that a grand piano will be given for one million coupons. She declares that she will marry the man who secures the piano and soon a "smoky battle" takes place. But alas, when Tom and Dick have accumulated the required amount of coupons, a law is passed prohibiting their redemption, and Harry, who has never acquired the tobacco habit, wins the day by purchasing the coveted piano.

It gets hold of something actual
3 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A little offering that will please, because it gets hold of something actual. It will especially appeal to men whose wives collect tobacco coupons and also it shows two ways of buying a piano. Ruth Roland has said that she will marry the man who gets a piano, offered for a million tobacco coupons. John Brennan and Jack McDermott smoke, smoke, smoke, to get it; neither succeed. Marshal Neilan saves his money and buys it. The farce made good laughter. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
