Henry "Pathe" Lehrman, the busy but mediocre director of many a 2-reel comedy, was entrusted with the Richard Talmadge vehicle On Time. As usual, stunt-man Talmadge plays a dashing young adventurer, pitted against a veritable legion of villains. This time, he must rescue Billie Dove from the clutches of a Chinese Tong leader. Leaping and bounding up staircases, down fire escapes and off buildings, Talmadge enables the audience to ignore the film's utter lack of a plotline. Only its relatively stellar supporting cast differentiates this Richard Talmadge epic from the star's many other cookie-cutter quickies.
