An illustration of what a hypnotist might be able to do
3 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this picture, which, by the way, is not entirely agreeable, there is an illustration of what a hypnotist might be able to do. He succeeded in weaving a spell about this unfortunate girl which won her away from her friends, fortunately for her, her former maid sees her entering a strange house and informs her father. He and her lover enter a taxicab and are driven to the house, arriving just in time to prevent a farcical wedding between the girl and the medium. The lover nearly chokes the medium to death and compels him to release the girl from his power. She renews her engagement and all ends happily. - The Moving Picture World, December 16, 1911
