Storyline

There was no doubt that Mary Scott was a plain, homely-looking girl. Still she found a lover, and on her wedding morning she was as pleased as a bride could be. Just before the ceremony, however, she receives a letter from her intended husband, telling her he does not love her. He prefers beauty and poverty to ugliness and money. He loves her pretty sister. There is a hysterical scene and Mr. Scott, the disappointed bride's father, departs for his office in a very troubled state of mind, not knowing how to get Mary off his hands. But a solution of the problem is found amongst his own office force. He finds it necessary to discharge one of them, Bill Robinson. Before Bill vanishes, a thought occurs to Mr. Scott. Would he be willing to marry his daughter? Bill is. Off he goes to interview the young lady. He balks at her ugliness, and, of course, prefers the pretty sister, whom he persuades to elope with him. She tells her ugly sister, Mary, and persuades the latter to take her place. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The fun comes from the acting and general management of the picture
23 July 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy-farce and a very amusing one. The fun comes from the acting and general management of the picture rather than from the situation, which is clever enough but slight. The father and mother were trying to get the elder daughter married; but difficulties always arose through the prospective fiancé's falling in love with the pretty younger sister. In the last case, younger sister helps. Older sister dresses in her coat and veil and elopes. Father doesn't know what's up and chases the fleeing couple. They win to the justice's, and say! the groom's face when the just married bride removes her veil is a study. An excellent lightener for use with a heavy feature. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
