Several months of waiting hand-and-foot upon invalid Aunt Mary, brings the Stone family to desperation. She always wants something and they can never even get a meal in peace. In despair they send for a nurse, who, finding that the aunt is really a fake invalid, declines to stay, packs her traps and departs without even giving her reason.

Presently she finds her having a good feed in the kitchen while everyone else is supposed to be out of the way. Betty waits for her aunt to get back into bed and then sets the mattress on fire.

Not great, but acceptable and interesting
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

A little study of human life, not great, but acceptable and interesting. Kate Price is that kind of invalid who, when no one is looking, will slip down to the pantry. She has the tantrums and is making life a burden for her sister, Mrs. B.F. Clinton, and her two nieces, Dorothy Kelly and Norman Talmadge. The picture shows us how she behaved and then how she is cured. It is amusing and seemed to please. Winifred Dutcher wrote the script which Charles Kent produced. It is clearly photographed. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
