Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The heroine whose lover, once a lieutenant in the army has got into disgrace through a momentary lack of nerve which suggested cowardice, and has been cast off by his father, a peppery general. War breaks out and the young man enlists and promptly gains the VC through fortunate valour. He would soon retrieve his good name and win back his sweetheart but for the machinations of his cousin, an out and out villain who, with his mistress for accomplice, undertakes wild schemes of iniquity for the purpose of keeping the lovers apart and thus securing the money left to them by the general. These schemes which include attempted murder, abduction, and colossal fraud. are foiled by aid of comic but benevolent policeman who is responsible 'for the rude humour which is sandwiched between the thrills of crude and extravagant melodrama. Innocuous in its ridiculous extravagance' and accordingly licensed by Ernest A. Bendall.
