Bunny in drag
3 April 2016 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Yet another John Bunny comedy creeping out of the woodwork thanks to the splendid EYE institute.

Bunny is in fine form as Bridget the cook (played in drag but absolutely straight) curing a spoilt bourgeois hypochondriac by a dose of hard work in the kitchen. The social satire may be mild but it is spot-on and the film has all the usual elegance of composition and fluidity of movement typical of Vitagraph

The film relies on Bunny's superb screen-presence, particularly impressive here because he/she is quite self-effacing for a good half of the film before deciding to take the treatment out of the hands of the idiotic doctors.
