A Quiet Day at Murphy's (1914)
- Summaries (1)
The day begins at 5 A.M. The patients at Murphy's (be it here known that Murphy is a doctor who cures men of the result of the sins, not of the sins themselves), among them Willie and Johnnie, are aroused for their exercise and cold showers. At 8 A.M. Beatrice and her father arrive. Dad has the bottle habit. The ardent daughter of barley never worked such havoc among Murphy's patients as did the beauteous Beatrice in the hearts of Willie and Johnnie. On mattresses and horizontal bar, with dumb bells and piano, they perform marvelous feats for her entertainment. Johnnie is ousted from favor by Willie. Cleverly he hides a banana peel at the critical spot, and the unsuspecting Willie lands on it to his ultimate discomfiture. However, Beatrice consoles the wounded man and Johnnie decides on severe methods. He fetches gunpowder and sprinkles it about. Suddenly fate, in a gray suit, gray silk socks, necktie and hat to match raps for attention. Beatrice springs to his arms with two words, "My husband." The final sub-title is "Farewell, cruel world," spoken by Willie and Johnnie. Into each disconsolate month goes a handful of powder; a match is struck.
