The working out of the picture does not convince strongly enough
27 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodramatic picture about musicians employed in a band at a fashionable restaurant. The bandmaster is the villain and the first violin is the hero. They both love the same girl (played by Marian Leonard). The picture seeks to interest through cleverness rather than to stir the emotions. ft is a faintly disguised comedy. It uses a mask ball as the set for its climax in which the bandmaster is made ridiculous. The working out of the picture does not convince strongly enough to make us sympathize with its characters, nor does its humor even rise to laughter. In fact, the lavish and expensive way in which it is put on, with its sets, its costumes and its general good acting, is the chief reason why it gives good entertainment. - The Moving Picture World, September 7, 1912
