Nearly all the big film companies, the buyers of photoplays,
are located in or near NEW YORK CITY. Being right on the spot
and knowing at all times just what sort of plots are wanted by the

SYNOPSIS OF "'MQNEY,"
THE COMEDY CLUB PLAY.
Sir John Ves*y, w ose consuming
love of money gives the title to the
play, awaits the readi of the will
of a certain wealthy relative, Mr. Mor-
daunt of India, by whose clause he
expects a lion's share of the heritage.
While awaiting the reading, Alfred
Evelyn, Sir John's private secretary
and distant poor relation of Mordaunt,
solicits a loan of ten pounds that he
may send it to an old nurse who is ill.
Sir John refuses but his tenderhearted
daughter Georgina, asks him forthe
nurse's address, promising herself that
she will send the money if she falls
heiress to the wild
Clara, companion of Lady Franklin,
and in love with Evelyn, secretly gets
the address of the nurse and sends the
ten pounds herself, all that she has in
the world. That her kind act will not
be known to Evelyn, she has Lady
Franklin's maid address the letter.
Subsequently Evelyn asks Clara to
marry him but she unselfish, refuses
the poor youth that he may not be
made miserable by the additional bur-
den of her own support.
The will is read before the assem-
bled relatives, numbering, Sir John
Vesey, Georgina, Lord Glossmore,
Stout, Graves, Blount, Sharp, and
Evelyn. After several whimsical be-
quests are read from the will, it de-
velops that the bulk of the immense
fortune is left to Evelyn, the poor dis-
tant relative who was least expected
to fail heir.
The newly rich Evelyn begins to be-
come miserable. His love has refused
him, but he invents a cordicil and
settles 20,000 pounds upon her, that
she may be made happy, and then he
devotes himself to Georgina, the spoil-
ed child of a miserly father. For he
believes that she sent the ten pounds
to his poor sick nurse. Sir Frederick
Blount, formerly in love with Geor-
gina is about to propose to Clara, and
all four seem on a fair way to unhap-
piness, when Evelyn invents a new
scheme. He refuses to pay his bills,
Is seen as a constant companion to
Dudley Smooth the cleverest crook
and gambler in London, tries to bor-
row money and is finally arrested for
debt. Sir John in despair tells his
daughter to break her engagement
with Evelyn, which she does willing-
ly, reengaging herself to Blount, the
dude. Clara, pitying Evelyn in his
adversity places 10,000 pounds to his
credit in the bank, sending him notice
of the deposit in a letter addressed in.

letter to the old nurse. Lady Frank-

everything up to his own satisfaction,
his ruse having worked. He has
gained his wife and he still has his
"Money."
