Clever acting
20 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Husband is jealous of his wife's brother whom he has never seen, so he makes the butler dress in one of his wife's gowns and then she is jealous. To tell the truth, there is very little left to this particular situation, but the players in this case have done all that they could by clever acting and have succeeded in putting some comic atmosphere in it. - The Moving Picture World, August 8, 1914
