This Vitagraph potboiler begins as a self-styled ladies' man peruses the "advice to the lovelorn" column of the local newspaper. Following the advice offered by the columnist, the hero tries to be all things to all women. It never works, and by film's end his face has been firmly slapped by every female in town. The story ends as the young would-be romeo tears the newspaper to shreds (before, presumably, going off on a "tear" himself). Even the most undiscerning of film fans were aware that Vitagraph was capable of better work than this.
