| Arthur Lake in a Kilt
Part of Universal's series of one-reel Bluebird Comedies, this one stars Arthur Lake as a student who's confined to his dorm room to study on the night of a big costume party. When Professor Wise (George B. French) comes to check up on him, he finds Lake in a bathrobe, book in hand. As soon as the prof leaves, Lake rips off the robe to expose his Scots costume.

At the dance, Lake meets his sweetie (Nancy Drexel) and fills in her dance card. As the music starts, other guys keeps cutting in for a dance with Drexel and her little brother uses his slingshot to pelt Lake's butt with olives. Eventually the prof shows up at the dance and Lake has to hightail it home before it's discovered he's sneaked out.

Much humor is derived from Lake's wearing a kilt, especially with the slingshot and the wind storm.

The Bluebird Comedies were made between 1925 and 1927 and also featured Neely Edwards and Charles Puffy, among others.
