|Plot||Mary had a little Sam, who was always following her about, but was too bashful to propose. Accordingly, in order to encourage him by examples of marital happiness, Mary takes him calling on several wedded friends, to whom she has previously written as follows: "Sam hasn't proposed yet, and I want you to help me out. Will you and your husband please be extra affectionate when I bring Sam to call this evening? With love, Mary." The tour is at first successful. Such a circuit of matrimonial dove-cotes, with couples billing and cooing in each, cannot fail to encourage a bashful bachelor, even though he is a little embarrassed by the elaborate displays of conjugal felicity he finds in every home. However, by the time he takes Mary home, he has made up his mind to "pop the question," when she discovers that she has left her handbag at some of the homes they have visited. Gallant Sam volunteers to recover it, if she will wait at the gate for his return. But he comes back "a sadder if wiser man." For, on his return tour of the domestic circuit, he finds that a change has come o'er the spirit of their dreams. Instead of billing and cooing, as in the first act, every couple is quarreling and bickering over some domestic difficulty. As a climax, Mary's brother-in-law, who is so mad that he must fight somebody, throws the handbag at Sam. "There was Mary, waiting at the church," but all she gets is the handbag, and "So long, Mary." Sam beats it back to his bachelor den.... search for A Narrow Escape on IMDb|
