A familiar name heads the story of "At the Banquet Table," that of Harvey Gates, whose contributions to the literature of the screen are now a welcome asset in the producing department of many moving picture manufactories. In this case he has succeeded in converting the happenings of a few hours in the world of reality, and possibly only a few minutes in the land of dreams, into an acceptable moving picture scenario covering easily two reels of film. George Lessey the producer of the picture has succeeded in working in some good effects with the aid of a competent cast headed by King Baggot and Arline Pretty, with a support consisting of Ned Reardon and others whose joint efforts are an asset to the production. According to what we become wise to at the close of the picture, the young man (King Baggot) whom we have seen at the opening of the story being feasted at the club, falls asleep at the banquet table, and the remainder of the picture is made up of a series of connected incidents which occur in his dream, which moreover turns out to be something more than a dream, a veritable nightmare, in which he imagines that his pretty young wife is untrue. The production has been well staged and photographed, and is altogether an attractive one. - The Moving Picture World, April 3, 1915
