Storyline

Mr. Up receives a letter from his Neighbor, Calvert, just across the hall, to join them at the summer resort for a week's outing. Up immediately 'phones a baggage man and leaves word to call for his trunk at seven next morning. Seven o'clock arrives and Up's alarm clock does a merry jig on the chair beside the bed, but Up sleeps peacefully on. Awakening at last he discovers he has but fifteen minutes to catch the train, piles all his clothes into the trunk and sends it off with the baggage man. Then he looks around for some clothes to wear and finds everything has gone in the trunk. Clad only in his pajamas he dashes madly down the street after the departing wagon, is arrested, hauled back to his apartment, and is released when he forks over a bribe. Determined to secure clothes he enters Calvert's apartment across the hall, holds up the new butler at gunpoint, relieves him of his duds and forces him to don the pajamas. Endeavoring to make the train he is forced to forsake a slow cab,... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Drawn out to a full-length reel, and parts of it are thin
14 March 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This farce was unfortunate in following a good Essanay picture, and suffered somewhat; but, compared with all the pictures we have seen today, it gives acceptable entertainment. It has a fresh situation, but was drawn out to a full-length reel, and parts of it are thin. Mr. Up, played by Howard Missimer, is an absent-minded man who gets up late and packs his trunk with all his clothes. The expressman takes it away before he comes to enough to find that he has only pajamas to wear. E.H. Calvert plays the friend who sends him the invitation, with Dolores Cassinelli as his wife, and Master Billy Calvert as his child. Wm. Bailey plays the butler, and Lily Branscombe the maid. - The Moving Picture World, November 30, 1912
