Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The rough and ready 'diplomat' is the American consul - ex-editor of the Texas 'weekly scream' - who, in some Belgium city, is implored by an English bride to save her husband from being shot by the Germans as a spy. His brusque threats to the German commandant seem likely, by telephone, to do as much harm as good; but his 'diplomacy' is much more successful when the prisoner, after escaping, takes refuge in the consulate and is passed off as the consul's clerk. Harmlessly effective in its obvious way. Recommended for license. Ernest A. Bendall.
