A novelist receives a letter denying the existence of the characters in his stories. In reply, the novelist looks at a painting called “The Misdeal” by western painter Frederick Remington. As the author stands by the painting, the camera approaches and enters the picture which comes to life.

The dialogue cards are in German for this one. It was rather common for silent movies to be sent to Europe for viewing.
