The first version of this Balfe operetta was a silent film made in the early 1920s that starred Ivor Novello, Ellen Terry, and C. Aubrey Smith. This second attempt is a clunker from Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Based on the old chestnut in which the child of a nobleman is snatched by

gypsies and raised as one of the Romany tribe, this alleged comedy has kidnaping, torture, adultery, burglary, and a bad script. The photography is also awful. Art Lloyd and Francis Corby were able to achieve the impossible: they made Thelma Todd look lousy. This was her last film, and much of her

work had to be cut because it wouldn't match the stand-in. Todd died of carbon monoxide poisoning at Santa Monica Beach under circumstances that suggested murder. She made 40 pictures in her brief career.
