Isn't a great picture
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture featuring Lillian Walker as a statue. The trouble with this is it has to eat. John Bunny, Flora Finch and Courtenay Foote also have roles. It is funny and made laughter, but isn't a great picture. A.A. Methley is the author, and the producer is Frederick Thomson. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
