A comedy about twin "boys" who deceive their rich English uncle, with Marion and Madeline Fairbanks ("The Twins"). This story of an American family’s innocent deception to earn money from a rich English relative is about as broad as Thanhouser comedy ever got. The Thanhouser studio avoided slapstick despite the vigorous success the genre was enjoying at other studios. Young movie actresses of the time often portrayed boys, but here the Thanhouser Twins get to make fun of the practice.
