Storyline

Mr. Jenks, completing a series of experiments, which render him indestructible, empties some chemicals into the kitchen stove. There is a terrific explosion and Mrs. Jenks is surprised to find her husband uninjured. A thug attacks Jenks and is extremely puzzled when his bludgeon has no effect. A steamroller runs over the indestructible gentleman, whose tranquility is not disturbed in the least. Even a wheelbarrow load of bricks dropped on Jenks' head does not injure him. But when Mrs. Jenks, having baked some biscuits, inadvertently drops them out of the window, Jenks, homeward bound, meets his Waterloo. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Surely a success as a laugh-getter
30 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Surely a success as a laugh-getter. Ruth Roland makes biscuits for hubby. Mother never made any like them. John Brennan, who is hubby, has had an eventful day; even a steam-roller has run over him. Coming home one or two of the biscuits fall on his head and Ruth wears black. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
