HISTORY

       The U.S. Library of Congress catalog gives the following description: “The plot is based on a misconception as to the true identity of the hero and the heroine. The hero, a young contractor, is mistaken by the heroine for a laborer, while he thinks she is the maid although she is the daughter of the manor. The hero continues to represent himself as a labor in order to see the maid, and the daughter, in order to continue her impersonation, borrows the maid's clothing. But, at the end, the two main characters are brought together in their true light, with the blessing of their respective mothers. This was the first film Frank Powell directed.”
