This Essanay comedy zeroes in on a pretty girl with a problem. Thanks to a physical affliction, she twitches her head from time to time at the most inopportune moments. Unfortunately, everyone the girl passes mistakes the twitch for a flirtatious gesture. Before long, the luckless lass is leading a long line of would-be romeos, all of whom assume she's coming on to them. The basic gag in A Flirty Affliction would continue to do service in two-reel comedies throughout the talkie era, most memorably in the 1944 Vera Vague vehicle Doctor, Feel My Pulse.
