Winky misunderstands a letter his wife writes to the butcher and hires a female detective.


The Bioscope (19/Nov/1914):

Winky’s Jealousy. — A release which should certainly meet with a pleasing reception, well staged, briskly enacted, and excellent quality. The scenario, while not exactly novel, nevertheless ingeniously shows how a note sent, and returned with an under-written message from the butcher, is sadly misconstrued. The reason is obviously shown, and enables a smart little comedy, free from blemish, and one with quite a good ending. (December 21st. 926 ft.)

Kinematograph Weekly (26/Nov/1914):
