French 2 Reeler has the curiosity value of being early Feyder (with his wife Francoise Rosay as an extra in the scene shot in the horse tram).
The nervous job applicant is told the position requires expert penmanship and realizes he has mis-spelled "référence" so he hides in the cupboard till after closing time to correct his application. At the same time a burglar checks out the place and breaks in. Our hero is (understandably) arrested by cops, including a young Fernand Ledoux with his bushy black mustache.
Glimpses of 1918 street life. Some attempts to visualize thought- the lead writing different spellings and similar words - iris in on calligraphy. Unremarkable.
