This Biograph one-reeler was copyrighted under the title The Girl From Mellon's. Stalwart D.W. Griffith stock-company actor George Nichols was prominently featured in this "contemporary" romantic comedy. Having lost his money in the stock market, a young man is denied the right to marry the girl of his dreams. He takes a job as a private detective, only to find to his surging delight that his first assignment is to keep his sweetheart from eloping with an "unknown suitor." Naturally, he is that suitor, but to throw the girl's father off the track, the hero disguises himself as a woman. The heroine's father unwittingly falls in love with the "woman" and proposes marriage -- in fact, he suggests an immediate elopement! By the time Papa finds out that his "bride-to-be" is his own future son-in-law, it's too late to do anything about it.
