Trivia

This is one of about two dozen feature films directed by Harry A. Pollard, which the American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films, in all 3 of their volumes, 1911-1920, 1921-1930 and 1931-1940, chooses to erroneously credit to comedian Harry (Snub) Pollard, who is, of course, a different person entirely.

Very dated film. Overacted to the point of absurd. Story is OK but presentation is sloppy. Direction is only fair. This one should be forgotten.
