Storyline

The magician astounds his audience with his feats of prestidigitation. Young women appear in clouds of smoke; innumerable apples and eggs come out of a hat and so on. In response to his call for an assistant from the audience, a boob comes on the stage. He promptly spoils one of the magician's best tricks by allowing the ropes which support the Floating Maiden to become visible to the audience. For the last effort the magician allows himself to be padlocked into a cask full of water. The boob pockets the key, and wandering behind the scenes, sits down to share the lunch of the young lady assistants. When the key is needed there is a mad search for him. Finally the magician is rescued. All agree that the entertainment was a howling success, though not quite what it was intended to be. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Hardly sufficient for a full reel
24 October 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Burlesque with settings intended to represent a theater in which a magician performs wonderful tricks until the boob comes to his assistance. Then everything goes wrong. While the action is hardly sufficient for a full reel, it is enlivened every once in a while by touches of broad comedy that please an audience. - The Moving Picture World, March 13, 1915
