| He's Fallen into the Water!
Harry Edwards was a new director when he turned out this Keystone in the house style -- fast, furious and not making much sense. It takes place in the space between a swimming pool and the ocean and the three plots -- Poppa wants a drink, Raymond Griffith wants Julia Faye -- which certainly makes sense -- and the fat guy, who I think is Albert Gillespie, but I wouldn't take a Bible oath on it, wants to jump into the swimming pool, which, of course, pushes everyone else out.

People keep falling into the ocean, and even the Keystone Kops show up here, but other than a lot of splashing and Julia and Raymond standing out as human-looking among the grotesques, it's all confusing. For once, the editing, which was always topnotch at the studio, fails, as it runs the three stories concurrently, like Griffith's INTOLERANCE. That's D.W. Griffith, not Raymond.

I'd give this one a miss, unless you're pining for a view of everything Keystone.
