Author: boblipton from New York City

Looking at a Keystone satire of a real, old-fashioned melodrama is a bit like reading a review of a lost book. The real melodramas long ago vanished from our ken, leaving some recordings of Tod Slaughter's performances, honed in fifty years of touring in the sticks, a musical version of Sweeney Todd and a few Mighty Mouse cartoons in which Oilcan Harry ties Nell to a lumber saw.

Nonetheless, when this movie was made, the melodrama was still a living thing, and its excesses were just the thing for Sennett's crew to rip apart when he wasn't doing the same for the works of his former boss, D.W. Griffith. Their most famous version was in BARNEY OLDFIELD'S RACE FOR A LIFE in which they lifted the tied-to-the-railroad-tracks threat from BLUE JEANS. This is a lesser one, since there is no big set-piece, just a rather straightforward -- for Keystone -- chase on horseback to rescue the captured heiress from the clutches of Blackheart Senior & Junior. It's not bad, but like many a show from a hundred years ago, people are all too likely to have no context for understanding or enjoyment.
