The situation is very slight
Marshall P. Wilder plays a "godmother" under compulsion. Four boys needed a chaperone. They had found that the aunt of four girls, who had planned a visit to the college dormitory, had fallen sick. The tailor came with clothing he had been pressing and they saw a possibility in him, so impressed him into service, dressing him up as an old woman. He gets his revenge. There are laughs in it due to Mr. Wilder's presence. The situation is very slight. As entertainment the offering is fair. The four youths (one can't call them boys) arc Hughie Mack, H.L. Barry, R. Richmond and E. Thomas. The girls are Lucy Lee, Anna Stewart and Rosemary Theby. The authoress is Mrs. Breuil. It was produced by Ralph Ince. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
