Keystone Cops Her Painted Hero 1915

Vaudeville monologist Hamilton starrs in this two-reeler. He plays a ham actor in a third-rate stock company, while Polly Moran steals the picture as the sweetheart of the troupe’s gangly prop man played by Summerville. Marching to the altar with Summerville, Moran is suddenly lovestruck by wedding guest Hamilton. She deserts her fiance and embarks upon a stage career. The rest of the film is a travesty of a serious stage melodrama, where everything goes wrong because of Summerville’s jealous sabotage.
