Lessons in Courtship (1912)Comedy, Romance, Short · 1 November 1912
It is one thing to be in love and it is two things to be in love and too bashful to propose. This is Dick Warren's position. He confides in his friend, Billy Henson. "Leave it to me!" says Billy, "and after I have given you a few lessons in first aid to the lovesick and bashful, there will be nothing to it!" Billy arranges to dress himself in his sister's clothes and let Dick make love to him, coaching him in what he should do and say. They go to Billy's room and instructions begin. Dick is getting along famously, saying all sorts of sweet things to Billy; only calling him Alice, which is the name of the girl with whom he is in love. In the midst of the performance, Billy's sister, with Alice, hide behind the portieres and overhear everything that is said. They are convulsed with laughter and pull down the portieres. Dick is so chagrined he can scarcely speak, but it is not necessary for him to say anything. What Alice has seen and heard has explained everything and the rest is easy for Dick.
