This farce is not wholly new
1 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This farce is not wholly new, but there is more to it than to the other on this reel and it took better with the audience. Dell Henderson gets home in the morning drunk and finds the burglar at work bright and early. The burglar compels Dell to give up his dress suit and, when the cop comes, turns him over to "the hand of the law." A friend recognizes Dell and then there is an exciting chase after the burglar, who has jumped on a motorcycle. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
