Storyline

Excerpts from a film identified as 'A Mile-a-Minute; or, A Brave Girl Does Her Duty', which is apparently Episode 50 of 'The Hazards of Helen' (1915), and also 'Weighed in the Balance' (1911) are held up for ridicule by an inanely unfunny commentator for the entertainment of enlightened 1947 audiences Written by Anonymous
