The copy of this I have seen lacks intertitles which makes it a shade difficult to unravel the subtleties of the plot in the unlikely case that there were any. The comedy occurs on shipboard where Jimmie is the object of attention for a pair of pickpockets who plan to use him to smuggle their ill-gotten off the ship. Arrested at customs, he manages to escape but gets caught again as he tries to rejoin his girl whose father is trying to remove her from his influence.
Interesting only really for the picture of immigrants (typical of the time and common to several films of the period) holed up in Ellis Island which was fast becoming something of a prison-camp. In this case the regard is unsympathetic (all garlic and violence).
