Madge Edwards and Co.

16 Mins.; Full. (Special). Presenting a badly written Mexican sketch of the kind applause type Miss Edwards and her company just about managed to pass. The man (company) plays two characters. A bandit has robbed an express car, escaping with $15,000. At the opening the girl’s father is just leaving to join a posse. The girl is alone in the house; the bandit appears (the same man doubling) dressed as a Mexican vaquero in holiday attire and employs an Italian dialect for Mex. The bandit forces the girl to prepare food for him and then tries to make love to her. A fight and sword duel follows, with the girl finally working the bandit over to a wolf trap which she has set near the fire place. The bandit is caught and the girl goes to collect the reward for his capture. The act isn’t there.
