Storyline

Max Linder and his fiancée, Madge, scheme to get a few minutes' lovemaking, for Max's prospective Pa-in-law is inclined to monopolize Max over a game of draughts or whist. First, they play a game of blind man's buff, and, while Papa is blindfolded, Max and his fiancée repair to the next room, and a blissful interval follows. Poor Papa is quite unable to catch anyone. At last the recreant pair steal back, and when Papa angrily removes his bandage the lovers are sitting demurely in different parts of the room. Papa is a little suspicious at first, but a new puzzle game which Max has brought diverts his attention. Seated around the table, they each set to work to unfold the puzzle. Papa soon becomes so preoccupied that Max and his lady-love are able so steal away. In a short time they return, and slip back into their seats, but Papa has not noticed their absence. He is overjoyed because he alone has succeeded in solving the puzzle, and has won the game. Written by The Bioscope
