Lame Victorian Melodrama Spoof
12 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charles Ray reappears from obscurity to star as a gormless hero, who, due to the schemes of Allen Mowbray, loses his wife Aileen Pringle and his freedom. Will Ray escape from jail, and relieve THE BRIDE'S BEREAVEMENT?

This is one of a series of shorts by a Hollywood gang called the Masquer's Club, which assembled a peculiar array of stars for each short. The one thing they didn't get was any funny jokes. Ex-Big Silent Star Charles Ray goes through his paces, without giving the slightest hint of why he was a star in the first place. Mowbray does OK with the villain part, but as a double dealing skunk, he's no Tod Slaughter.

This one is obscure. Save some time and keep it that way.
