Quite a novel turn in affairs
9 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

To have a joke turned on them, and by an Englishman, too, is not the fortune of every company of lively Americans; but here is an instance where it is done. The Biograph players make the picture very real and succeed admirably in carrying out the spirit of the picture. To be set upon by a company of Indians was the fate of this Englishman, an amateur dramatic company supplying the means by which it was accomplished; but it is quite a novel turn in affairs to have the Englishman seize a gun and ax and chase the perpetrators of the joke out of the place- and into hiding. It is a neat and attractive bit of humor, satisfactory in every sense, dramatically and pictorially, and received loud applause. - The Moving Picture World, March 5, 1910
