Reviews

The Bioscope (19/Nov/1914):

Winky—Bigamist. — Of a broadly farcical nature, this comic will, no doubt, despite a situation which borders upon Continental humour, please the average audience immensely. A practical joke is played upon Winky, by means of a pair of dummy legs, while he is in a state of drunken stupor. What is witnessed through the keyhole by wife and father-in-law will cause much amusement, as will also the hasty reprisal upon the jokers. (December 24th. 664 ft.)

Kinematograph Weekly (26/Nov/1914):

Winky, Bigamist (C). — When Mrs. Winky is out of the way, Winky is induced to spend a lively evening at the pantomime, and is well primed. A wire is sent to his wife, who arrives to see and hear through the keyhole some terrible goings on. Released Dec. 24th, length 664 ft.
