Sometimes The Cure Is Worse Than The Disease
3 February 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Brunin plays Eugenie, a tall girl who picks her nose at the table and won't sit up straight, despite the constant remonstrances of her parents. In fact, she seems to be incapable of doing so for any length of time -- sitting or standing up straight, not picking her nose, which she does with ease. Eventually she makes the effort, with disastrous results!

It's a split-reel comedy from Jean Durand's unit at Gaumont. Most of the actors are regulars in his company, whether for comedy or the cowboy movies he turned out frequently in this period. Brunin, however, seems to have appeared only in this one comedy. Unless the Belgian painter Leon Brunin was trying out the lively arts, this actor seems to be obscure, although the single name indicates some famed, real or assumed.
