Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

An artless and harmless little play of the war. A wounded English officer takes refuge in Marie's cottage. The German colonel who pursues him turns out to be a villain who had tried to run in Marie's brother but was prevented by the said Englishman, Dick Stanley. So he threatens Marie and fights Dick; German soldiers arrive and Marie, standing in front of Dick, saves his life at the cost of her own. Then, of course, the English soldiers arrive and the wicked German is shot. Recommended for license. G. S. Street.
