Storyline

In the Moore family Aunt Elsa, the old maid sister of Mr. Moore, writes she is going to pay them a visit. The Moores are without a cook and the day the aunt is to arrive there is a party on hand. The house is at sixes and sevens. Bobby, the twelve years old boy, much to his disgust is commissioned to meet her at the railway station. His father gives him a dollar and a half for lunches and carfare and his mother and sisters tell him to keep aunty out all day. Aunt Elsa is met by her young nephew and his eyes are opened in astonishment for he does not find her a typical old maid aunt, but a middle-aged woman full of life and spirit. She refuses to ride in street cars and calls a taxi. She gives Bobby the time of his life, and upon reaching home, impersonates the new cook. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It falls into what is rather stale farce
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Charles M. Seay, author and producer of this picture, deserves credit for conceiving a situation rich in comedy possibilities. He has worked it up, for the most part, very well. Once in a while (take Aunt Elsa's breaking the plate, for instance) it falls into what is rather stale farce, but on the whole is very amusing and certainly made the audience laugh, at times heartily. Alice Washburn plays the lead as Elsa. a spinster aunt, full of the old Nick, whose coming seems unfortunately timed. Yale Boss is commissioned to keep her out of the house till after the party given by the two girls, Gertrude McCoy and Clara Adams. Bigelow Cooper is father, and Mrs. C.J. Williams is mother. The photography is very clear. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
