Storyline

When she overhears her employer, Banker Trent, tell that his son, Jack, has gone to Beverly Hills for the summer, Virginia Scott, the typist, is bitter with envy of the wealth and freedom that the young man enjoys. In her shabby room she is inspired with an idea to spend all her saving upon clothes, go to Beverly Hills, pose as a rich woman and win this most desirable young man for a husband. Her chum, Jane, agrees to go as her maid. Arrived at the fashionable hotel, Virginia and Jane take possession of a splendid suite of rooms. Jack Trent, having invited as his guest, his cousin Jim, has already arrived. Jim is a lover of the good things of life, but is poor and too indolent to make a manly struggle for them. Jack, wishing to be free from social restrictions, so as to sketch and paint, suggests to Jim that he take his name and pose as a millionaire.

Will remind one of an old-time Biograph comedy
17 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A drama that in its general plan will remind one of an old-time Biograph comedy, in which employer and valet change identities in order to fool a woman and her maid, not knowing that the latter likewise have outwardly transposed their positions. In this case the wealthy man poses as a poor artist and permits his poor relative to appear as the man of means. A stenographer determines to appear as an heiress and induces a friend to accompany her to a summer resort as a maid. The poor relative wins the supposed heiress, but when she relents and informs him of the deception, the suitor declines. The real rich man, however, comes to the front and takes the girl for himself. It is a "beautiful dream," fairly well acted, but it is hardly convincing. - The Moving Picture World, December 27, 1913
