What's a Decent Burglar to Do?
13 September 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Marguerite Clayton is knitting baby booties, which is the only way to tell a husband who won't come to the phone they will be visited by a little stranger. In another room of the apartment, Brocho Billy Anderson, taking a rest from the lone prairie, is trying to break into the safe. When husband Lee Willard comes home stinking drunk and in the mood for love, will Billy play the gentleman?

We sometimes forget, because he was the biggest cowboy superstar around (although William S. Hart would soon surpass him) and co-owner of Essanay Films, that G.M. Anderson (born Max Aronson) was an actor, capable of playing many parts in his time, and enjoyed the occasional modern-dress role. This is a very pleasant little comedy.
