Gaumont's Dummy in Disguise rather gives the game away in its title. The "hero," a burglar, decides to pick up a few extra francs by posing as a department-store mannequin. When the shop closes, the burglar drops his "dummy" guise and heads for the cash register. So far, so good. But for reasons never explained in the picture, the burglar does not head for the hills, but poses as a dummy the next day -- and the day after that. Maybe it made more sense in its original French version, or maybe the explanation was dropped during rehearsals.
