The situation was old in Shakespeare's time
While there were very few laughs over this Bunny picture there is much of it truly amusing. The situation is good and the acting of Bunny, at times, hits the mark squarely. The development from the situation was old in Shakespeare's time and has been used in a number of pictures and perhaps this did a good deal to keep laughter down. Bunny is told by a fortune teller that he will soon he rich. He doesn't worry, but gets drunk to celebrate. Some jovial practical jokers take him home and make him think that his fortune has come true and the following evening when he is drunk again take him to his home. The photography is fair. It was produced by Wilfred North. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
