As in a Looking Glass (film #2 in the Comedy Sketches section of American Variety Stage: Vaudeville and Popular Entertainment, 1870-1920. Also in the Historical section of Open Video Project). [Category: Early Film & TV]

A kid plays a prank on Grandpa involving a string, a hole in the wall, and a dresser drawer. What this has to do with a looking glass is a mystery to me. Still, you get an idea of the popular pranks of the time.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
