Hopelessly in love with a woman working at MGM Studios, a clumsy man attempts to become a motion picture cameraman to be close to the object of his desire.
When Buster visits Sally at her rooming house, the older woman has the January 15, 1927, issue of The New Yorker. (Interesting also that the rooming house still has a year-old issue of a magazine.) She opens it to page 41 to read the G. Schwabe one-column article "My Country 'Tis of Thee", which recounts a conversation about Prohibition while women players are bidding during a game of bridge. For example, "Harry knows absolutely that every drop he buys comes directly off the boat. He is certain of this because his bootlegger is a fraternity brother of his."
Now, see! You kill-a de monk!
Cop: Pay him for that baboon... or I'll run you in!
As Buster goes to the newsreel office for the first time, we can see the same girl leaving the building in consecutive shots.
