A superior comedy
This is a superior comedy by Roy L. MacCardell, directed by Wallie Van and Wilfrid North. Wallie Van plays the leading comedy part, Willie Wildwave, and his home town is Jimpsonville. He visits New York and purchases a "Chicken Inspector" badge. He works it on the butcher, the restaurant keeper, seminary girls and the visiting burlesque show. He gives the town the liveliest time and biggest laugh Jimpsonville experienced. Finally they get his number, 23. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
