2 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

John Bunny, great musician and social lion, is the rival of Robert McWade, also a musician and a lion. Iolanthe McSwat (Flora Finch) loves famous musicians, but prefers McWade until Bunny proves to her that his rival wears a wig.

McCardell is author of the script and Larry Trimble the producer. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
