Storyline

A cigar drummer comes to the village and is at once attracted by Hank Hawkins' sweetheart, who is in turn flattered by his attentions. Poor Hank is forgotten even by his sweetheart's folks, with whom the drummer makes quite a hit. A party is given at the girl's house, to which Hank does not receive an "invite." As the drummer is the guest of honor he is master of ceremonies, hence when a suggestion is made to make some taffy, he insists on cooking it. Hank views the festivities through the window, and, to get even, he doses the taffy, which they put on the windowsill to cool, with Tobasco sauce. You may imagine the result.

Lust! Betrayal! Fudge!
4 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

One of the several dozen short comedies that Sennett directed for Biograph, before he went off to Keystone to work on his own, wilder farces. Here he not only directs, but stars as the jilted lover.

Although not as wild as some of his own comedies, this stands up better than much of the work he did at Keystone. People are recognizable, their motives are clearer and the jokes, in that context, a lot sharper.
