Its chief asset is Marshal Nielan's tramp
4 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This split reel has some freshness. Its chief asset is Marshal Nielan's tramp, which is really very amusing. The misery of the toothache makes John Brennan and this hobo companions in arms with a hot-water bottle between them. The two together on this reel make an acceptable program lightener. Both are clearly photographed. - The Moving Picture World, May 24, 1913
