Filmed in an early (and reportedly very convincing) color process, Other People's Children was a modest little comedy with plenty of "heart appeal." Though he despises children, a truculent old bachelor agrees to look after his two troublesome nephews in their parents' absence. The kids cause no end of trouble for their Uncle, whose temper finally reaches the boiling point. On the verge of ordering the children out of his house, Uncle changes his mind when he discovers that they've been stricken by the dreaded scarlet fever. During the long recovery period, the old man realizes how much he truly loves the two children -- and, by extension, all children. This two-reel serial comedy was the last of five films produced by the Kinemacolor corporation which were released one after the other during the week of March 7, 1913.
