Domestic Comedy
5 April 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Sidney Drew loves his wife, Clara Kimball Young, but when mother-in-law Kate Price shows up, he's relieve to be called away on business -- which turns out to be a costume party with his pals.

Sidney Drew, the uncle of Ethel, John and Lionel Barrymore, was a star for Vitagraph in this period. While the big comedy star at the company was John Bunny, Drew offered a more nuanced view of marriage, with lots of stage business. Notice his expressions and the way he presents the telegram calling him away to Miss Price. Within a year he would team up with his second wife in a matchless series of domestic comedies, devoid of the fantastic excesses that cap this one.

Still despite the almost slapstick excesses that end this one, this is a very funny comedy and a harbinger of better things to come. It's available for viewing in a very good print at the Eye Institute site on YouTube.
