Burnt Cork (1912)
- Summaries (1)
An amateur minstrel show is given and everybody in town attends. Some of the best known citizens take part, among them Mr. Kirkus, who provides himself with a nice box of burnt cork. His son, a mischievous little rascal, comes across it and mixes the cork with ink. The night of the show everything is carried out according to programme. Kirkus makes a hit. When it comes to washing up, old man Kirkus can't get the black off his face. He makes his way homeward disgusted. His wife doesn't know him and he is refused admittance into his own home. He lies down at his door step, waiting for morning. While lying there, a colored man, escaping from his enraged wife, sees Kirkus and steals his hat and coat, replacing them with his own. The colored woman comes along, sees, as she thinks, her husband, and belabors Kirkus with her broom. Mrs. Kirkus hears the rumpus, rushes to the door, and recognizes her "hubby," and rescues him.
