| The Rich We Always Have With Us
Clocks stop when Ben Turpin looks at them, and mirrors crack, but he owns all the oil wells in the Rockies, so Bud Ross and Dot Farley are determined that their daughter, Harriet Hammond, will be married to him -- until he loses all his money and takes a job with them as a maid-of-all-work.

Sennett continues to aim his comedies at his lower class audiences in this one by showcasing the foolishness of the rich. He fills this one with his usual assortment of weird gags and over-the-top car chases at the end. I continue in my mild dislike of Ben Turpin, whose principal skill is to stand around looking cross-eyed while in an unlikely situation, but the Sennett staff built a superior comedy around him in this one.
