Comedy 1914 9 mins Silent


Bumps on the head lead to bumps all over for this hapless suitor. After visiting a phrenologist, he tries to feel women's scalps, causing much alarm. Blown up by suffragettes, he falls into the clutches of a cannibal who cooks and eats him. The trend for reading character from bumps on the head was past its sell-by date even by 1914, but producers Bamforth clearly saw its comic value.
