Mr. Taylor as the aeronaut makes a balloon ascension. The descent on the parachute is shown by moving pictures.
It has a novelty for the finale which held the interest of the audience and brought applause.
The piece is draggy in parts, especially during the “shell-game” scene, and there are altogether too many heroics. “The Aeronaut” might be developed into a “thriller” of the regulation brand.
