Description Alfred Dampier makes an excellent Captain Starlight, but if he could only sink his personality a little more it would be more effective. The groans that Edmond Holloway received as Dan Moran showed that he had well carried his part. Mr W. H. Smith merits a word of praise for his successful delineation of Warrigal, the half-caste. Miss Clements as a very excitable old maid, caused great laughter.
