Storyline

Rooly, Pooly and Dooly were "picture sandwiches," but hardly shining lights, even in that capacity. Consequently they were "canned" by the management. A brilliant idea; one would play the wild man in the village square, a real live show of their own. Rooly and Pooly then basked in the society of fair country belles, but Dooly at length was rescued by Miss Smart, looking for excitement. She was not disappointed.

The common people are dreadfully frightened
19 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Three actors fail to make a hit on the stage and try to "raise the wind" by exhibiting one of their number as a wild man in a cage. They leave him when they have collected a little money, but he is released by a fearless young lady. She takes him to her home and plays the piano to him. The common people are dreadfully frightened when they learn that the wild man has escaped; but the dreadful suspense is relieved when they meet him with the young lady and he takes off his wig. There are institutions where this comedy might be found very amusing. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
