Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a very ordinary melodrama, described as 'the great super spy play'. The hero recognises the German spies who are after a new aeroplane and feigns to be in love with the female one, thus upsetting the heroine, in order to discover their plans. He is left bound in their house and is untied by the comic man; the spies get into the aeroplane factory and after killing two other people and wounding the hero escape in the new aeroplane; but the heroine, who has fortunately learned to fly, pursues and sends them to the ground. Lurid and silly, but mercifully short and with no particular offensiveness about it. Recommended for licence. G. S. Street
