Movie Info

If the name "Tillie" appears in the title and the film is made in the latter half of the 1910s, it's a sure bet that Marie Dressler is starring. Here, she plays Tillie Tinkelpaw, the put-upon family breadwinner, and her foil is Johnny Hines as henpecked husband Mr. Pipkins. The pair decide to escape for an afternoon from their horrendous mates (Frank Beamish as Mr. Tinkelpaw and Rubye DeRemer as Mrs. Pipkins) and go to Coney Island. They arrive via an ice wagon and have a bit of Scotch to take away the chill. Naturally, the liquor revs up all the slapstick antics to come. This was a great two-reel idea stretched out to five (how many times can Dressler sit on Hines and have it be funny?), but the stars' talents and some very funny titles carry it through. The scenario was written by Dressler's good friend Frances Marion.more
