Storyline

Jack, who is engaged to be married, is somewhat of a rounder. This is the only objectionable fault he has in the stern eyes of his prospective father-in-law. When the old man finds that Jack has been betting on the races, he forbids him the house. In the meantime, Jack, who has not abandoned his determination to win the girl, plays the races with success. The old man hears of nothing but the races at his club and he threatens to resign. Finally, his curiosity aroused, he visits a poolroom. While he is there, the poolroom is raided. The old man is captured and jailed. Through the influence of Jack, after consent has been given to the marriage, prospective father-in-law is released. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Causes much amusement
27 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a King Baggot comedy which of course contains a love episode. Arline Pretty plays opposite Mr. Baggot. who is known as Jack and an inveterate gambler. There is a stern old father who is also an objector, not only of Jack's attentions to his daughter but to his gambling proclivities. The outcome of this meritorious offering causes much amusement and is highly edifying. - The Moving Picture World, July 11, 1914
