A Tricky Painter's Fate (1908)
4min · Short, Comedy · 22 September 1908
A car appears at the station and a number of passengers are seen leaving it. A painter comes to the station and enters the car. He tries to deceive the train conductor as to the number of passengers who are in the train, by putting pictures of various figures in the windows. His idea for doing this is to have the car to himself. The station master, who has been approached by the angry passengers, makes his way into the car to ascertain the facts for himself. He finds that the car is only occupied by the artist with his paraphernalia. He throws him out of the car with all his belongings and flings the paintings on his head, leaving the painter entangled in a mass of picture frames and torn canvasses.
