Daddy's Double (1910)Comedy, Romance, Short · 5 April 1910
Hal Dunton is very much in love with Sue Post, in fact, too much so to suit Sue's father. To drive the matrimony idea out of Sue's head, papa places her in a boarding school and instructs the boarding mistress to keep a sharp eye out for Hal. This the lady does, and succeeds in defeating a plan on the young people's part to elope. Hal and Sue are in black despair. Eventually Hal finds a way out. He hires a photographer to snap-shot Sue's father in the street and then, using the resulting photo as a guide, makes up to resemble papa. As papa, he fools that gentleman's coachman into driving him in the family coach to the boarding school, where Sue joins him. They journey to the parson's and are wed, and outwitted papa "comes around" all right.
