Storyline

Two men like the same woman, and she prefers the large, strong one over the smaller, nimble dandy. The rivalry first comes to a head when she rejects the dandy in front of a Chinese laundry; a fight ensues, and the big guy's dog adds to the dandy's humiliation. Then, that night, during a dance held at the neighborhood fitness center, the dandy hires some thugs to beat up his rival. The plan goes awry, which precipitates chaos. Fido's on hand to add to the confusion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The movie earns a couple extra points for the dog!
17 July 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Luke the Dog is a frequent co-star in Fatty Arbuckle's Keystone comedies. And, frankly, most every time the dog shows up, the movie seems a little better! Really--this isn't just because I am a dog lover but because the dog was an excellent actor--perhaps better than some of the OTHER co-stars! While Luke's best film is Fatty and Mabel Adrift (though IMDb does not list this film among Luke's filmography), this is still a nice little film worth seeing. This isn't because there's a lot to the plot apart from the dog--there's way too much slapstick involving Fatty and Al St. John hitting each other. But, this very simple slapstick picks up greatly when Luke joins in and chases Al up a ladder and across roofs! He's a heck of a dog and seeing a person do all this just isn't too interesting.
