Storyline

Louie was lazy, and owing to a diet of flashy novels, he grows up to be a worthless young man. He had a job in an office, but when summer came, gave it up and hied himself to the seashore, securing a place as life guard. He decided after a few days that there was one girl who would suit him. She was very pretty, and accompanied by an elderly gentleman, undoubtedly her father. Louie tried to scrape an acquaintance with her in the water, but failed. Just the same his chance came, the girl was seized with cramps, and Louie gallantly rescued her. Everything was going just the way things did in the yellow-backed novels. But he was rudely awakened, however, for the next day the broker failed to thank him. Then Louie learned to his sorrow, that the "girl" was the old man's wife, and that old men are sometimes stingy with their money. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A rather pleasing offering
2 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Harry Benham appears in this as a life guard at the beach. Flo LaBadie plays the part of the girl. She is contemptuous of his attentions until she gets out in deep water and he is called upon to save her life. The usual marriage does not follow, however, as Louie merely dreams that part of the story. A rather pleasing offering. - The Moving Picture World, October 18, 1913
