Lost Context
8 September 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This was one of a series of short comedies produced under the supervision of D.W. Griffith, probably as a potboiler to keep the money coming in while he was concentrating on BIRTH OF A NATION.... what would later become part of the Triangle-Fine Arts company. But only a few of these survive, and director Eddie Dillon was not a sure hand at directing comedy: it's mostly medium shots with one or two long shots, and as a result, visually repetitive. In addition, it seems that a lot of the humor is based on knowing the characters in the series it is based on.

Miss Tincher is busy giving her all, and Max Davidson knows how to overplay his part amusingly -- he's not in his usual Jewish costume, but made up with a Ford Sterling beard. Both would do much better later. For completists only.
