Storyline

The images on the screen tell it all. In a drawing room, the clock shows two on an afternoon. Adulterous lovers cling; her husband is due home momentarily, so he leaves. She goes to a table to play solitaire, sitting on her departed lover's hat. She removes it and sets it on the table as her husband enters. She denies anyone has been with her, except her lover. She and her husband go into the bedroom. The lover comes back for his hat. The married couple returns to the drawing room, and the men confront each other, with cigarettes, pistol, and puns, while she sits at the table. Is there anything anyone can do for the other in this satire on the needlessness of talking pictures? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A rather painful experiment.
4 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

James Sibley Watson made this bizarre art film and apparently thought it was a dismal failure and he tried to hide this film. Somehow, it made it to the DVD set entitled "Unseen Cinema: 1884-1941" and is on Disc 2.

When you see this film, you might easily see why Watson disowned it. Like a Dadaist film, it really makes no sense and Watson deliberately directs his actors to act in a terrible fashion. The leading man and woman talk mechanically--almost zombie-like. It's really rather stupid if you ask me, though I am sure there are folks out there that adore this sort of stuff. Why make a film with deliberately horrible acting?! To quote my youngest daughter "...whatever". As for me, whacking myself in the head with a dead fish is certainly more enjoyable. And, I am sure, a Dadaist would love to see that!
