A rough and tumble farce comedy
15 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a sort of a rough and tumble farce comedy that involves the wages of Mr. Sinn, therefore the caption. Mrs. Sinn elects herself treasurer of the Sinn family and to increase the exchequer cuts down family expenses to very light meals, and even sells her husband's clothes. The outcome gets many good laughs. On the same reel with "Military Tattoo at Aldershot, England." - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
