| Mable In a Hot Air Balloon
Mable seems a little embarrassed about her new boyfriend, Roscoe Arbuckle. She giggles with two girlfriends about him. He is a quite clumsy fellow. Arbuckle does a very nice backwards fall here. Arbuckle and Normand go to the beach. In the meantime Charles Inslee comes on as Handsome Harry, a cad looking to prey upon Mabel's friends. They rightfully avoid him. After some shots of Mabel and Fatty in their swimsuits, Mabel ends up in a runaway hot air balloon. The Keystone Kops come to the rescue. However, the Kops and Roscoe just get in each other's way, so that it is really Mabel who has to rescue herself.

This is the Keystone Kops' fifth appearance for Mack Sennett and they are not given very much to do. They are only on screen for under two minutes. They are barely distinguishable from each other, as we only see them in medium long shots.

This is a fun movie with some nice chemistry between Mabel and Roscoe. It moves fast and it has the elements for a good Keystone comedy. The mix isn't quite there yet, but the comedies were rapidly improving at this time. It was released in August, 1913.
