Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

George Layton tops the bill with his new military scene, with its 'pathetical comic and tragic end'. It is a 'worthy successor of his previous triumphs'. The Four Harveys surpass themselves, and make the audience wonder with bated breath 'how is it done?'. Carlotta Levey sings her two latest successes - 'Do a good turn when you are able' and 'Put a little bit away for a rainy day' But the audience doesn't let her leave until she sings her 'Gambling Man' as an encore. The Barrascope performance is weird and cleverly manipulated, and the other films 'supply the fun usually associated with animated pictures'. Notice that Mr. Elbourne is acting as manager for the Cycle and Motor Car Parade, and is receiving entries all the time, but wants more. Readers are urged to 'hurry up my cycling friends and bring along your fancy cars and cycles'.
