In the characterizations of the shop girl bide and the department store salesman, both are doing an admirable bit of character drawing.
The idea is away from the rough talking comedy sketch and contains a vast quantity of fine humor.
One would imagine that it would appeal to such an audience as patronizing as the Fifty-eighth street house with a great deal more than it does.
The lines are bright enough to go into a monologue without a plot to support them. The business of the young couple's casual attempts at housekeeping are uproariously funny. Miss Norton, who wrote the sketch, calls it a “dramatic cartoon.” That is an accurate description. It is a cartoon, with a touch of caricature, but enough of lifelike drawing to drive the picture home.
