Selig's split-reel release for the week of October 8, 1910, consisted of two 500-foot comedies: My Friend the Doctor and A Cold Storage Romance. The doctor picture begins with a patient paying an emergency visit to his physician. Alas, the doctor is of the absent-minded variety, and as a result he administers the wrong medicine. The patient then goes through a series of slapstick convulsions which were intended to be funny, but reportedly raised nary a laugh when the film was first screened in New York. Variety commented sarcastically that the film would have gotten more yocks if the producers had shown a chicken getting its head cut off.
