Abstract:

A man sits in a woman statue's lap. An intertitle appears: "Mother was the loveliest woman in the world, and mother wanted everything to be lovely." Mother stands in a room, dressed in a fur coat. There is a closeup of her face. A man holding a ukelele stands outside the house, appearing to court her. The next intertitle appears: "Mother always said she could have her pick." Mother sits at a table with a man. The next cut shows a man standing under her apartment window. Mother looks out the window, a bored expression on her face. Various men try to woo her by bringing presents under her window. She ignores them. The next intertitle: "And she picked father." Adults acting as children play in a yard, suck their thumbs, play with dolls and guns, and swing. They progressively age with each successive sequence: next they are shown as flirting young gentlemen and ladies, then they appear older. An older mother puts on a hat and leaves the house. The "children" play again. Many hats are thrown out a window after one "boy" steals father's beard and tears it up. A man's hat is stuck in a tree; the man uses a stick to get it down, and the hat becomes a woman in the tree. At the end of the film, father's portrait is upside down with closed eyes. Mother appears dressed in father's suit, holding a bridal bouquet.
