Storyline

A retired capitalist rears his three motherless daughters in the seclusion of his country place, away from the gaze of man. An accidental meeting with three wholesome young fellows whose automobile stalls outside the grounds, produce consternation in dad and damages six hearts in pairs for all eternity. Tom, the boldest, gains admission to the home as a spinster teacher, and by coquetting with dad rouses that gentleman to a sudden recognition of too youthful appearance and finds himself stalled permanently. In the study room he manages his disguise nicely, but in the boudoir he has an embarrassing moment when the three fascinating pupils perch about in their pajamas and chat over their new teacher and offer their services as maids. At last he gets them off to bed and himself retires, but his two partners rouse him by climbing the wall at his window and demanding recognition of their existence. He agrees to arrange a meeting with the girls. Next day he takes the girls into the woods ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The production is not free from vulgarity
14 March 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The plot in this film has been seen so much that it hardly serves to hold the interest any more. The young man masquerades as a governess. The production is not free from vulgarity and its pleasing photography is perhaps its strongest point. - The Moving Picture World, January 10, 1914
