Extraordinarily funny
4 July 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A burlesque comedy on a weird dime novel which is foolish but is extraordinarily funny and excellently produced by Marin Sais, Lloyd V. Hamilton, Marshal Neilan and Bud Duncan. This comedy is received with great laughter by the audience and is deserving of all it gets. - The Moving Picture World, January 9, 1915
