Gerald and Percy, whose ardent friendship and bitter rivalry caused all the trouble in "Fruit and Flowers" and "The Widow," are found where they were left at the conclusion of the latter picture, in their hall room, Percy endeavoring to nurse a damaged optic back to health by means of a raw pork chop, and Gerald preparing to fill his empty stomach by cooking the chop that fell to his share. A letter is brought in announcing the pleasing fact that Percy has inherited a tidy sum of money and, a la Damon and Pythias, they proceed to enjoy it together and move into luxurious bachelor quarters where they are skillfully waited upon by a well-trained valet.

The comedy in this is lively and quite comprehensible
22 September 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Another humorous adventure of Gerald and Percy, quite as rich in its way as the others which have preceded it, like "The Widow" and "Fruits and Flowers." They are suddenly transported to considerable financial heights by the receipt of a legacy and they proceed to enjoy it in quite the usual way for a time. But they come to grief through following another heiress, which they had vowed not to do. In the end the laugh is on them, even though they spend their last dollar to catch her in a trap. Back they go to their hall room and eat bologna and dry bread supplied by the friendly slavey. The comedy in this is lively and quite comprehensible, consequently the film will be popular. There is a hearty laugh in its different scenes and the denouement is exciting in its surprise to the two young men. - The Moving Picture World, November 5, 1910
