Storyline

Blinks goes to the theater, where he hears it first. Mlle. Tinee sings it; is repeatedly encored and continues to sing it until Blinks leaves the theater in disgust. Blinks enters a restaurant, orders a big meal and is about to eat heartily when the orchestra merrily strikes up the latest rag. "Twinkling Eyes." Blinks upsets his table and after dousing the musicians, and everyone else, with a cold spray from the seltzer bottle, angrily leaves the restaurant. Blinks goes to his office, and finds his stenographer humming the piece, and Johnny, the office boy, playing it on a mouth organ. Blinks destroys both the sheet music and the mouth organ and in disgust leaves the office. He enters a barber shop and is in the midst of a shave when the colored bootblack whistles it gaily, whereat Blinks leaps from the chair, and upsetting the surprised darkey, dashes out of the door. Blinks goes home, but is again upset when his neighbors in the flat below begin singing and playing "Twinkling Eye." ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
