Irish it is, all the way

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
13 July 2017

Here is another Marsh Wilder-Bill Shea scream. Don't take our word for it. Go see it. If you have any Irish blood anywhere behind you you will go again. For Irish it is, all the way, even to a near wake, in which participated two of the real things in the way of weepers or criers. Shea is Wilder's good friend and tries to protect him from the wiles of the widow. Kate Price fills this line in the cast. The little fellow gets word from America of the fine opportunities on the police force. As he has money, he determines to go. Counting it, the widow sees him in the act as she peers through the window. She determines to marry the man and go with him. "Hide the money; here comes the widow," Marsh tells Shea. The widow, however, locks up her intended and takes the key. Through the keyhole Bill inserts a long-stemmed clay "comeallyer," and between the whiles he quaffs copious draughts of the "craytur" he lets fall into the bowl a little for the other fellow. This is all real fun. But it won't touch the wake. Bill gets his "dead one" by all but the keen eyes of the widow. Through the tears she sees the truth. She "busts up" the wake. In her might she gathers in her arms the struggling mite and in triumph bears him to her own home. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
