|Plot||The wedding of Miss Gwendoline De Vinne and Lord Rowley was an elaborate affair and at the reception following the ceremony the guests are showering the couple with congratulations. Lord Rowley had one drawback. He was very near-sighted. When the more frivolous among the guests realized this condition presented an opportunity for some fun they seized upon it. As the time for catching the honeymoon steamer drew near. Lord Rowley's eye-glasses were lost. One of the guests persuaded the groom to search every place where the glasses were not. Another of the guests busied herself with bribing Lady Rowley's African maid to don the bride's traveling suit and mask the color of her face with a profusion of powder. The plan worked like a charm and Lord Rowley and the counterfeit bride were at the steamer before Lady Rowley discovered that her husband was missing. In an automobile and accompanied by her parents the bride hurries to the steamer. She is just in time, to miss it. Meanwhile, as the steamer slips oat of the slip, the negro maid gets scared. Her voice and language scare the bridegroom and he beats a speedy retreat. But it seems that every time he turns a corner he sees her. Finally, he takes refuge in a ventilator funnel. Peering out he sees her and in his hurry to get back, loses his grip and drops down into the coal bunkers. When he gets up out of the coal he is a sorry sight. The real Lady Rowley hires a tug and pursues the fast-disappearing steamer. The little tug makes fine speed and soon the bride reaches the side of the steamer and starts to climb the ladder which is dropped over the side. One of the guests hands her Lord Rowley's glasses. Once in possession of these, Lord Rowley sees the joke, hut with his real bride in his arms at last, he should worry. By this time the lady of color is getting seasick, or, at least, she gives that impression and begs to be allowed to get off. She is afraid to descend the forty-foot ladder from the steamer to the tug: so they use the tug's derrick to lift her off. When the maid is in mid-air the steamer resumes its journey and the counterfeit bride kicks and screams when she sees the ocean yawning beneath her. It is some time before the tug's crew, satisfied with their joke, finally lower the pale-faced African to the deck of the tug where she receives a well-earned monetary reward for her part in "An Exciting Honeymoon."... search for An Exciting Honeymoon on IMDb|
