An ancient roue beholds a young and fair lady in a public place, and proceeds to force his society upon her. Do what she will, the girl is unable to rid herself of his unwelcome attentions and, in despair, makes an appointment with him. She then proceeds to write to her doctor, informing him that her uncle has gone mad and that her life is in danger. Meanwhile, the aged lover has dragged his unwilling bones to the trysting place, and when the lady of his hopes drives up he is glad to accompany her in the car. Unwittingly he is taken to a lunatic asylum, where he is promptly seized upon and effectually quenched of his belated passion by an icy shower bath. It is an amusing picture, though not, perhaps, calling for any special remark. (The Bioscope, Sep. 2, 1909)


Une jeune femme importunée par un Mr assez âgé en parle à son docteur qui lui dit que l’homme doit être fou! En effet, le vieux Mr est tellement entreprenant qu’il paraît vraiment fou. Le docteur alors l’enferme dans un cabanon et lui administre une bonne douche qui le ramène à la réalité. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)

Weitere Filmbeschreibungen/Kritiken:


A young lady pestered by an elderly gentleman, who is in love with her, succeeds in getting rid of him by taking him to her doctor's, to whom she has already suggested that the gentleman in question was mad. So enthusiastic is the old fellow with his love affair that he really appears mad, and the doctor has him confined in a cell and soused with water. His antics as he gradually comes to his senses are laughable. (Billboard, May 21, 1910)


A certain, though decidedly vigorous, cure for love. When the poor, deluded old gentleman is thoroughly soused he discovers that he didn't love the young woman after all, though he may have supposed he did. (Moving Picture World, Jun. 4, 1910)
