Storyline

John Dobbs, a young man in good circumstances, goes a-courting, and returning from the home of his lady fair, his auto runs down Zeke, the vacuum-pated roustabout of the town. Although Zeke was not hurt, he was the recipient of a severe jolt which gave him a temporary case of nerves, which scared John into a fit of earnest solicitude. Imagining the tattered condition of Zeke's clothing was due to the accident, he not only soothes his imaginary hurts with a balm of silver dollars, but takes him to the store and buys him a suit of "hand-me-downs." Zeke is quite unaccustomed to such a bestowal of munificence, and his gratitude is accordingly excessive. So much so that he then and there swears eternal friendship: that he will never desert him; that he will stick to John through thick and thin. John cries. "Holy smoke! What am I up against?" and jumping into his auto dashes off under the impression that he has left the poor simple-minded Zeke on the sidewalk. But not so, for when he ...

A Mack Sennett Comedy
16 October 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

When we think of D.W. Griffith, we think of his epic features; or perhaps we think of the short melodramas. We don't think about the comedies he directed, and this is puzzling to me. Even his unhappiest dramas had their touches of humor.

In the four hundred or so films that Griffith directed for Biograph, he turned out a fair number of comedies, often using Mack Sennett. Here, Mack Sennett plays the title role, of a too-loyal friend who hangs around when he's not wanted.

Of course it all ends with a chase. Griffith didn't quite invent the movie chase, the rush to rescue whoever it is that needs rescuing, but he certainly perfected it. Here we have a lovely variation, as Adonese keeps trying to run away, but Sennett keeps turning up. Very amusing.
