Storyline

A typical "chorus girl's meal ticket" prevails upon a stage hand to take a bouquet to her mon amour. The stage hand takes the bouquet with a wink; but once out of sight of the Johnnie, he changes the name to that of the big fat woman who does the menial work around the theater. The flowers are presented to her with due bombastic ceremony and she coyly accepts them, together with the message that she is to meet the sender at the stage door. What is Johnnie's surprise, then, to see this ponderous substitute coming wobbling toward and then throwing her arms around him affectionately. He makes a frantic struggle to get away and finally succeeds 'mid laughter of a crowd of stage employees. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

An Act of Cruelty
21 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Some flowers for a stage actress are given to a very large cleaning lady. When she reacts with gratitude, it becomes obvious that a prank was pulled and she was the victim. She is embarrassed and left crying. I would imagine if the film was still in existence there would be some kind of quid pro quo. As it is, there is hardly enough to make a decent reaction to.
