                 ————————————————————————————————————

Max, who has sponged upon a wealthy uncle, is told by that worthy to marry one of the daughters of an old friend of his. Max goes down to the farm. At a family council, it is hastily decided that Max must be induced to marry the elder daughter. The daughter shrewdly foresees that Max is more likely to want to marry her younger sister, and she accordingly insists on the sister being disguised as a servant during his stay. Max does not find farm life very congenial. The appearance of a pretty maid introduces some element of pleasure, and he has an exciting time for a few hours in manoeuvring to obtain glimpses of her. His indignation at finding her in his host's arms is expressed rather vehemently, and the father is forced to disclose the real facts of the case. Max promptly begs for the pretty maid for a wife, and gets her. (The Bioscope, Jun. 27, 1912)

Las des incessantes demandes d’argent de son neveu Max, l’oncle Prosper le menace de lui couper les vivres, à moins qu’il ne consente à épouser une des deux filles de son ami Parneer, gentleman farmer. Max se rend au désir de son oncle. Sophie, l’aînée des demoiselles Parneer, grande fille laide et disgracieuse, le nez chevauché par des lunettes, commence à monter en graine. Suzette, au contraire, est éblouissante de fraîcheur et de jeunesse. Or, M. Parneer veut marier d’abord son aînée. Mais comment amener Max à choisir Sophie? Le père ne trouve qu’un moyen: reléguer Suzette à l’arrière plan, dans un rôle de servante. Mais Max, fort déçu à la vue de la fiancée qui lui est destinée a vite fait de découvrir Suzette dans l’étable et une idylle se déroule au milieu des oies, des vaches et du purin. Très amoureux, Max va demander à M. Parneer la main de sa servante, lorsqu’il découvre avec stupeur et consternation la pseudo fille de ferme, sur les genoux du gentleman farmer! Force est bien à celui-ci d’avouer son subterfuge et Max épousera la jolie Suzette.

                 —————————————————————

Max's uncle, tired of supporting the wild youth, sends him to the home of his wealthy friend, a farmer, who has two daughters – object matrimony. The farmer wishing to marry his eldest daughter, who is quite homely, disguises his young and beautiful daughter as a servant. But Max has an eye for beauty and accordingly wins the girl. There is a lot of fun, however, before he succeeds. (Moving Picture World, Dec. 14, 1912; Moving Picture News, Dec. 21, 1912)

 

An amusing Cinderella comedy in which a younger sister is made to dress as a hired house girl so that the older sister will have more chance to win Max Linder. A rainy day and a barnyard courtship make some very laughable scenes. It's a good offering. (Moving Picture World, Jan. 4, 1913)
