Storyline

Bertie Bellew, a leading man, is apprised by his manager that the company is almost bankrupt and that means must be devised to raise funds. George and Joe, two of the actors in the troupe, are sent out to solicit funds for old soldiers, but their real intention is to abscond with the money. Bertie has been carrying on a mild flirtation with Casaga, who lives with a wealthy aunt. George and Joe call at her home and the aunt tearfully tells them of her only son who was a soldier. In the photo they see a strong resemblance to Bertie and persuade him to impersonate the lost son. He visits a dentist and has his teeth removed; he has his body tattooed only to be revealed as a fraud. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
