A more than average comedy
16 March 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A Ruth Roland-Marshal Neilan comedy in which the two play the leading parts. The scenes of the play are located in the west. The plot develops that Greasy Bill, waiter at the Golden Gulch hash emporium, finds the wallet of the Duke of Tattenham Corners and proceeds to impersonate him at a summer resort. All goes well until the real duke turns up. but incog. He allows Bill to "splurge a few," then discloses his identity, to Bill's chagrin, then back to the hash-house for Bill. A more than average comedy. - The Moving Picture World, October 24, 1914
