Storyline

Silas Brown, in order to advertise his inn and boost fishing, offers a prize of one hundred dollars to the person catching the largest fish an idea which greatly pleased his daughter, who loves the sport, and who soon attracts the attention of the guests by catching a large fish. Learning of the contest and feeling the need of a rest from his society gayeties, Charles Morton decides to visit the Fishkill Inn. Upon his arrival he is hailed with joy by the female guests who lionize him to his great disgust. Thinking to free himself from their unwelcome attentions, he plans with his valet to have a letter sent to himself telling of the total loss of his fortune and then to retire to a tent in the nearby woods, where he can enjoy the fishing and solitude to his content. The plan works and he and the valet repair to the tent where the valet is to act as man of all works. Elsie learning of Charles' supposed misfortune and taking pity on him, furnishes the valet a basket of food from the inn... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A very attractive comedy
24 June 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A comedy with Elsie Albert and Charles Hutchinson in the leads. The girl catches the prize fish and puts it on his line, thinking he is in hard luck financially. The woodland scenes in this are pleasing and it makes a very attractive comedy number. - The Moving Picture World, January 2, 1915
