The pictue shows Mabel Trunnelle's versatility
20 August 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In a play called "An Old Lady of Twenty," a pretty actress (Mabel Trunnelle) was cast for an old lady's part. Her neighbor got a glimpse of her made up for her part and, being an artist, persuaded her to pose for him. As a prank she also fixed herself up to be a girl of sixteen. He thought the two were mother and daughter. He «as in trouble. He loved them; but the mother was too old and the daughter too young to marry. Then he saw her just as she was and he found her just the right age. The picture shows Mabel Trunnelle's versatility. It also is a very pleasing picture. It is almost a feature, well photographed and good. - The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1912
