Storyline

It tickled the audience greatly
19 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A farce featuring Hughie Mack and Wallie Van as two clown carpenters. It tickled the audience greatly and kept laughter going which at times was very hearty, indeed. Flora Finch also appears in it. Florence Turner wrote the script, which James Young produced. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 29, 1913
