This Gaumont comedy was originally released on the same reel as the company's Wreck at Sea. While a dentist tends to one of his patients, two thieves clean out the safe in his waiting room. A servant informs the dentist of this robbery, whereupon he plots a terrible revenge. Tricking the thieves into his dentist's chair, the tooth-tugging hero subjects them to all sorts of hideous oral tortures. By film's end, the toothless miscreants are begging to be taken off to jail. This "comedy of pain" met with howls of something other than laughter when it was first shown in January 1910.
