Part of silent British melo
15 October 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Undistinguished British silent melo, with Compson's double performance it's one major asset. The film's part rediscovery however has become a talking point because young Hitch is covering half the unit functions.

Betty's willful, jokey self is advanced on by American (!) Clive Brook, who gets slapped and then kissed for his trouble. Back at the family country estate Betty one puts reserved lookalike Betty two in Clive's path, without either of them knowing about the situation.

About this time a few reels go missing before we get into the far fetched climax, set in the would be racy Chat Qui Rit club in Montmartre.

Nothing to distinguish this from what was being done around it, outside of it's interesting cast. It's always a shock to find character actor Victor (Confessions of a Nazi Spy) as a juvenile in this period.
