The humor being of the "rough house" order
31 March 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The search for the missing shirt in the Chinese laundry proves very hilarious, the humor, of course, being of the "rough house" order. The scene on the bridge was also good. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
