The comedy started the audience laughing early
11 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Miss Julia Swayne, in a recent picture, "The Cabin Boy," portrayed the broken-hearted jealousy of a proud, but simple-minded woman. Her portrayal of Mrs. Dickinson in this picture shows a flighty, temperamental woman in the throes of a very needless jealousy. Nothing will suit Mrs. Dickinson save to have her husband melting in contrite tears beside her bier. She had no idea of committing suicide, for she must be there and see it. She drapes a bier in the parlor between two candles and wreaths roses around its pillow. Dickinson, however, comes home before she expects him, and from the library door, sees his wife climbing up to lie cold and white under death's solemn wings. At first he can't make it all out, but gets a glimmer of understanding and plays the jolly widower. His wife springs up and fires the serving maid. The comedy started the audience laughing early, and kept it laughing till the end. and laughing heartily. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
