Synopsis / Plot
Moving Picture World categorized Won in a Closet as “a nonsense number,” but its minimal narrative has become even more confusing than it would have been originally because footage is missing at the opening of this sole surviving print. (A new main title has been re?created in the style of Keystone films of the period.) Essential to making sense of things is that we have two pairs of single parents and children. Mabel’s father is the local “constable”. He is smitten with the mother of the boy Mabel imagines “her ideal”. The young couple’s romance is disrupted first by two rival “cut ups” and then by misapprehension that a “tramp” is hiding in a closet at the mother’s home.
