Mack Swain (Ambrose) sneaks off to a bar with Charley Chase, telling his wife that he is going to San Francisco on the train. When Mack gets into a fight at the bar and the train is reported wrecked in the newspaper, the usual series of comedic calamities ensue.
Yes, it's the same plot as SONS OF THE DESERT, and clap hands, here comes here comes Charley in an early version -- only this time he's Mack's co-conspirator instead of the obnoxious drunk the Boys meet in Chicago.
Although the humor is a lot more primitive in this one, it is still pretty entertaining. There were few scene stealers as accomplished as Mack Swain. Watch him at work here.
