Storyline

Max Linder's behavior when he applied for a job as a Pathé Frères moving picture actor, was such a good joke on him that it was decided to make a film of the event, and accordingly. Max was called upon to play the lead. He was serious for once in his life, when he offered his services, and to see Max serious is really amusing. The first film for which he posed was '"Mr. Henpeck," and the rough deal he received, caused Max to forget that he was acting, and he turned suddenly upon one of his co-workers, whose duty it was to abuse him, and a rough and tumble fight ensued. The belligerents could not be parted until a stream of water was turned on them, and as soon as he could speak through anger and water, Max resigned, but reconsidered his decision later on, as his many admirers well know.

The best offering released today
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This split-reel is the best offering released today by good odds. In the first half, Max Linder comes back with one of his welcome farces, not quite at his best, but very good; it markedly pleased the audience and there was a good deal of laughter. Max plays an awkward and inexperienced picture actor who has been taken on by Mr. Charles Pathe. Motion picture patrons will enjoy this offering. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
