To no one's surprise, Essanay's Fortunate Misfortune is a tale of bad luck turned good. A young man is spurned by his sweetheart and his "friends" when he loses his money in the stock market. Unable to travel in his old social circles, the hero is forced to look for real work. He gets a job as an iceman, and in this capacity meets the girl of his dreams, who in the final scene consents to become his wife. A satisfying coda finds the young Romeo getting sweet revenge on those who turned their backs on him in his time of need.
