Storyline

Zeb had lived all his life in Sprucetown, and was utterly untainted by any knowledge of the rest of this wicked world. But Zeb's wild, untrammeled soul sought utterance in the divine realm of music. Zeb practiced on the trombone. When a bill poster came to town and began posting announcements of the coming visit of an "Uncle Tom's Cabin" company, Zeb hailed him as a fellow servitor of the arts. With a descriptive announcement sheet of the "glittering galaxy of talent," soon to "grace the boards" of his native town firmly clenched in his hand, Zeb reclined against a hay-stack and mused on the future glories he would win with his trombone. In a short time he fell asleep. it seemed to Zeb that in some inexplicable manner he had become a member of the "glittering galaxy of talent."

The picture didn't get over strongly
8 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Zeb (William Wadswcrth), is a farm boy and his instrument is the trombone; on the pitchfork he is not strong. The neighbors, it is shown, are not fond of his trombone work. Zeb has a dream in which we see him leader of the band connected with a troupe of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" players. The picture didn't get over strongly, but it has many things to commend it, certainly the players have done their parts well. The author is William B. Pearson and the producer C. Jay Williams. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
