Storyline

Tom West and "Cuty" Gray, old sweethearts, who have not seen each other in five years, have grown enormously stout. They arrange to come on to the city and meet each other. The first thought each has is to find some method of reducing flesh, and both see Dr. Thin's advertisement in the paper, telling of his wonderful methods of reducing, etc. So both, unknown to the other, start in training at the obesity "cure." Without discovering identities they find a way to slip written notes back and forth under the partition that separates the two departments, exchanging compliments and confessing why they have to reduce. This is kept up at some length and the complications are highly amusing, as they tell each other their real weights and laugh at "themselves" in general without once knowing it. Finally each discovers they are heavier than when they started, and agree to quit and go out and have lunch together. Of course, it is not until they are taking leave of Dr. Thin that they come face to... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Both are well filled enough to suggest the situation
19 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy freshly amusing and well acted. John Steppling and Mary Hight play an engaged couple who haven't seen each other for five years. Both have grown fat, both have written that they dislike fat people. Neither of these players are really fat, but both are well filled enough to suggest the situation and both are good comedy players. They make their reducing exercises and fasting very convincing. We saw it with an East Side crowd up in the gallery. The audience plainly was enjoying it and, after the laughable climax, when the two go out for a good lunch together one hungry spectator began to shout out the order that the two were going to give to the waiter. Howard Missimer plays Doctor Thin; Lily Branscombe, the lady attendant; Chas. Hitchcock, the man attendant. Beverly Bayne, Mildred Weston and Evebelle Prout are the lady orchestra while Dolores Cassinelli is the cabaret singer. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
