Worth Seeing For Charley Chase's Classic 'Crazy' Routine
This two-reel comedy is worth seeing just for its centerpiece, which is Charley Chase's classic example of a character pretending to be crazy. There are some bland stretches, as well as some dated aspects that become rather distracting, and these keep the feature as a whole from being better. But there are also some hilarious moments that show Chase's style at its best.

The story has Chase and Martha Sleeper in a tangled romantic setting, which leads to Chase's character pretending to be insane, so that he can get out of an unwanted engagement. The script gets as much as you could ask out of the idea, and Chase is well-suited for this kind of premise. The main sequence also includes some creative comedy ideas, particularly the offbeat gag with the hat and the feather.

Oliver Hardy appears in the supporting cast, but only as a straight man, so he doesn't get to do much. The earlier sequences move rather slowly, but the concluding sequence works well enough. Overall, it's a solid if uneven comedy, with some highlights that make it well worth watching at least once.
