A young fellow from the country arrives in the city with a note from his father to an old friend, in which the parent states that the youth is about to be married, and as he is far from being up in the ways of the world, he is to have him remain in town for a while to learn something of city ways. When the young man, who is an awkward, supercilious identity, arrives at the home of the friend, he is received very cordially by the man and his loving wife. The young fellow shows at once that he has a very keen eye for beauty and is deeply impressed with his hostess. In the next picture we see the host taking the young fellow out to show him the sights. They sit at a cafe and are enjoying some refreshments when two pretty girls at the next table notice that our friend is a green one from the country. They carry on a flirtation, but the youth is too timid to make any advances, so finally the girls take sole possession of him and lead him away from his friend. He escapes, but they pursue him and overtake him sitting on a bench in the park, and after relieving him of his watch and money they let him trot along. He hurries back to the home of his friend and finds the wife alone, and she, being rather attracted by his demure and winning ways, makes him sit on the couch with her, and soon they are having a very pretty little love scene, when, to their horror, in walks the enraged husband. He immediately proceeds to give his guest a good beating. After kicking him all over the house, he sits down and writes a note to his father, telling him that he is returning his son after one day's stay in town, for he has graduated with honors and could even give him pointers now. He then starts the young man on his way home with a kick. (Views and Films Index; Moving Picture World, Aug. 29, 1908)


De Saint Flour, Monsieur Tartempion envoie son fils à Paris pour y faire son éducation sentimentale. Des amis, les Groslardier, se chargeront de son émancipation. Monsieur Groslardier se multiplie et produit le jeune homme dans les endroits les plus suggestifs à la perte de la vertu. Mais le jeune homme, n’ayant pas l’habitude des femmes, considère celles-ci comme des monstres vomis par l’enfer, et, gauche, congestionné, recroque­villé, il demeure assis sur l’extrême bord de sa chaise. Monsieur Groslardier, confie le jeune Tartempion à sa femme qui entreprend de suite son éducation. Effarouche d’abord par les avances de la jeune femme, le jeune homme finit par se familiariser et déploie enfin ses premières armes. Monsieur Groslardier, qui ne s’attendait pas à un résultat aussi prompt et aussi complet, renvoie le jeune homme dans sa famille avec la lettre suivante: “Cher ami, je te renvoie ton fils. Dans la même journée, il a acquis toutes les bonnes qualités qui feront de lui un excellent mari. Il me rend même des points” (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)
