Storyline

Fatty and Mabel, a married couple, visit the San Diego Exposition; after watching the parade, they rent a motorized cart. While Mabel makes a quick shopping foray, Fatty can't keep from flirting with and then chasing after a petite woman passing by. He follows her into a hula pavilion where he also is attracted to the plump Hawaiian dancers. Meanwhile, Mabel is looking for him, and so is the petite woman's husband. The ensuing arguments attract the cops, and it all plays out in front of the Exposition's fountain. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

6 September 2008 | by (Alpine, Texas) – See all my reviews

That's John (or Jack) Coogan Sr. standing behind Mabel near the beginning, and I think that was Billy West, who started out imitating Charley Chaplin's "Tramp" character, appearing near the end. I consider this short to be just a little better than most of the early Keystone efforts, which were often "let's take a camera out someplace and film funny things," and frequently ended up being pretty awful. I did enjoy the hula "girls" getting into the spirit. I wish they had shown more of the exposition, because my grandfather who had been a Cavalry troop commander, was assigned to the Department of California at that time, and told his children that his unit had been filmed more than once.
