    Daly's Theatre, London.

    Various shots show an excerpt from the show 'Floradora', where comedian George Graves as Anthony Tweedlepunch seems to be judging which man is most suitable for marrying Lorna Hubbard. The scene appears to be set on a desert island. Several people in pirate costume and normal clothes stand about on the stage. George Graves measures the head of one of the men, and deduces from this several characteristics of his personality. He pronounces him automatically suited to be the son-in-law of the girl's father.
