Storyline

They are true blue villains, both of them, and they are father and son. What is more to the point, they also are crooked lawyers. The son's wife is allowed none of the pleasures of life, but is obliged from morning till night to wash dishes, clean house, keep the rum bottle filled, and to discharge faithfully other innumerable duties which her husband sees fit for her to do. The lawyers are made the legal advisers of a pretty young girl. They plot that Villain, Jr., shall marry the girl and get the money, the disposal of the present Mrs. Villain, Jr., to be left to the future. However, the girl finds an able ally, and together they break the fact to the wife. She joins her muscle to theirs, well developed by her years of hard work, and father and son are worsted. In the finale the son comes crashing through the walls of his father's bedroom in a cycle car. nearly paralyzing the latter with fright. They both take a drink, however, and call it square.

Amusing moments
13 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A burlesque on the false guardian's story, with amusing moments. Chester Conklin is the guardian's son and makes life miserable for the girl with his unwelcome attentions. The hero appears and there is an exciting chase. The close is very funny. - The Moving Picture World, November 14, 1914
