Twins
6 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Twins Alice and Edna Nash get their stenographers' certificates. One goes to work for Wally Van, the other for William Humphrey. When the four meet at a restaurant, confusion ensues.

The pretty Nash twins had a bit of a run in the Teens, invariably together. This competent but not overwhelmingly funny little comedy has its moments, particularly when Wally Van is displaying a temper by throwing things. Mr. Van was a popular comic actor for Vitagraph in this period, and Mr. Humphrey was a serious actor whose movie career started with serious dramas and extended through the 1930s. This movie never causes any of the four to work very hard, although the presence of pretty twins who dress identically on all occasions is something that would have pleased the audience.

If you wish to see this harmless comedy for yourself, a good copy is available on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
