A superb hand with dialogue, Mr. Gershe here succeeds with a play that is adroitly balanced on the fine line between the melodramatic and the comic. Miss Pell has been missing for six weeks, and the police have given up the case because there is no evidence of a crime. Her brother and her brother's daughter (the niece) hire a private detective to find her. Since Miss Pell controlled the purse strings, and was such a tyrant over her brother and niece, they are not very anxious about finding her. The detective they hire, therefore, is one who has had a successive string of failures. He is quite a nice guy, though, and his earnestness more than makes up for his mistakes. He does indeed find and deliver Miss Pell, and then restores her memory. Well, it is immediately evident that he shouldn't have done that, for Miss Pell is unbearable when in her right mind. Her brother finally discovers the way to bring back her amnesia and convert her into a nice, plesant house-servant. A big hit in London and in summer stock with Everett Horton.
