Storyline

Fatigued from overwork, Cash, a railroad magnate, plans a long cruise with a congenial stag party upon his luxurious big yacht, cutting off all communication with the business world. A newspaper reporter gets wind of the departure and Cash's business enemies plan a great "scoop" during his absence. Cash receives a telegram from his business associates informing him of the enemies' deal and advising him to return at once. He hurriedly departs for shore, telling the rest of the party that he will return presently. He loses his traveling bag with his check book inside, and discovers himself in a strange town without a cent. Unshaven and disheveled, he is refused admittance to a hotel where he is laughed at when he claims to be the celebrated Mr. Cash. He finds himself in a strange predicament.

Among the best long comedies
25 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel picture production is one among the best long comedies that has been thrown on the screen for many moons. Anita Stewart, as Bessie Williams, a manicurist, falls a victim to her own beauty and joins an opera troupe, which closes suddenly in an unsympathetic one night stand town. A young millionaire figures through the action, who has been a former patron of Bessie's. He is on a yachting tour, but has been called back to city on important business. He loses his "grip" with his money and ticket in it. He and Bessie meet accidentally in the town where she is stranded, and the comedy grows around the "busted" millionaire who, unshaven, is taken for a beat and isn't allowed to stop in a hotel. Bessie helps him out, and afterward he reciprocates, and "back to Broadway" for both. The titles are very funny. A good production. - The Moving Picture World, March 7, 1914
