James J. Corbett

A young man has remained away from home for a long poker session. He returns late in the night with his winnings nervous about a man who has been following him. He ecounters a nurse who was called to attend to his mother-in-law and mistakes her for a female thief and thinks she is trying to give him knock out drops to take his money. Miss Tully is miscast as the nurse. She should be more nervous and assertive.
There are some bright lines and humour.
