The surviving prints of this Charley Chase short don't look so good. Still, that's all right. It's a piece from Charley's peak period, a fall story, good acting and lots of good comedy gags, some of which were apparently supplied by Stan Laurel, who was working behind the camera as much as in front of it at this time. Better this than a lot of bad stuff that survives in perfect prints.

The story is that Katherine Grant has been told off to marry an old man, which she doesn't care for; Charley is looking for a job. Guess who's father he goes to work for. And guess the name of the man Miss Grant is supposed to marry.

The plot is run out fully in this two-reeler, laced with the usual fine gags that Mr. Chase's unit used to punctuate them. Miss Grant -- this would be the next to last movie she would be in -- is pretty and does some nice reactions to Charley's shenanigans. Fred Kelsey plays a cop. What more do you want? Except for a good copy?
