A reel of pure nonsense
3 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A burlesque in the courtroom, which occasionally rises to laughable moments. Mr. Bingo finds a necklace and gives it to Mary. Later, when foreman of the jury, he finds he is helping try the man who is charged with stealing the necklace in the first place. His conscience leads him to reveal the truth. A reel of pure nonsense, but hardly the Keystone's best. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
