Much funnier in expectation than in reality
deickemeyer23 March 2016
The strength of this comic picture is in its characters rather than in the development of its idea, which, though very amusing and fresh, has a disappointing climax. The stranded theatrical company decides to make money selling fire-water hair-restorer to the Indians. It proves popular and makes the Indians want scalps. The thespians, with hairy wigs on and traveling to the next stand are overtaken. The result is much funnier in expectation than in reality. The Indians are satisfied rather than surprised or scared and later the troupe is seen walking on the railroad homeward. It is somewhat out of the ordinary and is very commendable. - The Moving Picture World, August 5, 1911
