Edna May Spooner

Edna May Spooner, looking like the Edna of Metropolis days, was in fourth position in a sketch. She is assisted by four people. Edna May is an actress widow about to welcome her son, who has been away for a long time (but not in the army). The boy returns and tells Mother he is engaged, that his fiancee is very high brow and expects to meet an old lady In the person of his Mother. Aided and abetted by Jimmy, a pal of the son's, Edna makes a change and does an old lady for the sweetheart Edna is putting it over, too, but tires of the role and denounces the girl, who leaves. She returns to find Mama washed up and recognizes her as her favorite actress. It's a pip for the small time.
