Storyline

The name of the trouble is Max Wilson, a celebrated tenor. When he arrives at a seaside hotel every other brand of hero sinks into insignificance. However, the boys do not wish to play second fiddle. One rejected suitor goes so far as to spy upon the tenor. He sees him powder his nose and, but to tell would spoil the story. Howbeit he carries the news to other rejected suitors. Between them they plan an intrigue. While the singer is entertaining the girls on the front porch the suitors procure a fish pole and station themselves upon the upper balcony. At an opportune moment a rejected suitor lowers a fishline and allows the hook to catch in the great singer's hair. He then pulls. No, the tenor is not pulled up by the hair; the hair is pulled up by itself. Confusion, chagrin, embarrassment, these are the emotions of the victim and in less time than it takes to tell, the lady-killer is en route to the city while the other brands of heroes stand at a premium.

This is old business
16 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An amusing little one reel comedy by Lois Weber, in which the jealous suitors lift the tenor's wig from his head by means of a fish-line. This is old business, but brings the usual laugh. - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
