Storyline

In the flat opposite Bunny's, just across the air-shaft, lives a very attractive widow. Bunny flirts with her and is caught in the act by his wife, who is going to the country.

She bids him a fond farewell, but she is no sooner on her way when Bunny unfastens the shade and continues his flirtation with the widow. This continues for two or three days, when an old maid, living in another apartment of the house, sees their doings and considers it her duty to notify Mrs. Bunny of the proceedings.

Has an entirely new and very amusing development
16 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

James Young, as author and producer, has given us a very laughable little picture, with John Bunny, Kate Price, Flora Finch and Mrs. B.F. Clinton in a situation which, if not wholly fresh, has an entirely new and very amusing development. It certainly captured the audience. Its quality is more like sparkling ice than a laughing summer breeze. John Bunny flirts with Kate Jones across the air shaft, and Spinster Finch has her eye on them. She sends a telegram and John's wife comes back. But these four individuals are far more interesting than average people even in photoplays. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
