This lively Keystone farce from 1913 is cast in the standard mode: it's a triangle caused by the fact that Mabel and Roscoe love each other, but her father likes another boy. A rather sissified young man. So Roscoe and Mabel pretend that Mabel has drowned and while everyone tries to rescue Mabel, the pair sneaks off and gets married.
I trust I haven't revealed any plot twists, ruining all possible enjoyment of this movie. It is rather enjoyable because when the Keystone Kops race to the rescue, they ride horses. Or try to. They've got some amusing trick horses and this makes the movie.
This is also supposed to be the first Keystone in which someone threw a pie. Roscoe throws it. All in all, a very enjoyable effort.
