There are only a few good laughs in this one
3 June 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The quality that people look for in "Jimmie" pictures will be found in this one, but it is not as prominent as in the best Jimmie pictures; there are only a few good laughs in this one. The first scene shows a very poverty-stricken tenement house room. There are many children, Jimmie among them, in picturesque rags and the children's mother. The landlady comes and gives the mother only eight days in which to pay the rent. After this period she returns with a bailiff, but Jimmie in the meanwhile has seen her in a flirtation with the butcher. He uses this information, reads truth on the lines of the lady's palm and practically "holds her up" for the rent. It is very amusing. - The Moving Picture World, December 16, 1911
