Storyline

Will Deming, a club man and hale fellow well met, returns home about six a.m. with somewhat of a jag. His wife, who has been patiently awaiting his return, notices his condition and an argument ensues in which her umbrella plays an all important part. A day or so later he appears at his club slightly disfigured. When his friends prove inquisitive regarding his appearance, he allows his imagination to get the better of him, and tells of a most remarkable experience, in which he, of course, was the hero. His story almost gets over, but Fate takes a hand by producing an amateur photographer who happened to be passing Deming's house during the argument. The snapshot which the amateur presents for approval puts Deming into the Ananias class. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

She dexterously wielded an umbrella
31 July 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Deming, in an early morning altercation with his wife, who dexterously wielded an umbrella and emphasized her remarks with considerable vigor, received somewhat disfiguring marks. At the club he permitted his stimulated imagination to run riot and related an adventure of considerable excitement in which he plays the part of a hero. He meets his Waterloo, however, through the appearance of an amateur photographer who appears with a picture that he happened to make while passing the house while the difficulty was in progress. Deming joins the club founded by a gentleman who has been somewhat prominent in his country's history for the past few years. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
