Storyline

The old fisherman spreads his nets to dry on the beach and goes to the tavern, where he imbibes rather freely. Jim and Helen, who have been enjoying a dip in the sea, decide to play a joke on the old fellow and Helen is wrapped up in the net. The fisherman trudges home with his odd bundle, much to the merriment of Jim, but when the latter calls at the shack, the fisherman declares that whatever he finds in his nets belongs to him. Meanwhile a thief steals Jim's clothes and when Helen is finally liberated, the young people decide that the fisherman has enjoyed the best laugh. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A brand new and rather audacious idea
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A farce with a brand new and rather audacious idea. It made laughter in a small audience and, under better conditions, will, we feel sure, go very well. Irene Boyle, for a joke on a drunken fisherman, has herself wrapped up in a net by her friend (Harry Millard). The fisherman, a tip-top comedy character (J. Bates), thinks her a big fish. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
