Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is an amusing little wartime sketch of the nursing of a wounded Tommy by a gushing old maid, with more money than wit, who, when her humble patient is recovering after a three months stay in her hospitable house, tells him to his dismay ‘I am yours and you are mine!’ Her effort to carry him off in her motor and marry him by special license is happily defeated by the jealous parlour-maid, who smuggles Tommy away with a view to providing him with a bride much more suitable than her silly mistress. Good fun and good-natured in its chaff of a feminine folly of the day. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
