The Villain Still Pursued Her

The Villain Still Pursued Her is a 1940 film directed by Edward F. Cline and starring Billy Gilbert and Buster Keaton. It was a parody of old stage melodramas, but based primarily on The Drunkard, a 19th-century prohibitionist play by William H. Smith of Boston. That play had also been lampooned in other productions, most notably in the 1934 W. C. Fields comedy The Old Fashioned Way.
