The Coaldust Affair

Directed by Jane Collins

A burlesque comedy of the 1850s by the author of "An Italian Straw Hat", Eugene Labiche, in which a misread newspaper leads two upright citizens into believing they have committed murder.

Two friends wake up after a drunken evening armed with all the evidence of having committed a murder...
