Old Maid's Valentine

Early comedy in which a cruel joke is played on an old maid

Comedy 1900 1 mins Silent


The eponymous old maid in this early comic film, seated in the parlour with her cat, receives an envelope addressed to Miss Pimple. A calendar on the wall tells us it's February 14th. Could it be a valentine? Love at last? Her expression indicates that she thinks it is, until the note is opened to reveal a picture of a baby and the legend "just like Mama". Oh dear.
