Storyline

Fatty's a harmless hobo. When he tries to cadge hooch and a free lunch at Ambrose Schnitz's bar, Herr Schnitz ejects him. Someone has been blowing up the taverns of people who treat penniless folks unkindly, so Schnitz's patrons play a trick on the publican, leaving a note that the place will blow up at 3 that afternoon. Schnitz thinks Fatty is the culprit. At two minutes to three, Fatty shows up with a cheese that he's bought with generous alms a swell tosses his way. Schnitz thinks the cheese is a bomb, and he runs for the cops. Fatty has the bar to himself. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pretty bizarre Fatty Arbuckle film
16 July 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Instead of the usual characters, Fatty plays a hobo and he is bit difficult to recognize under the makeup and clothes. He is a lazy but harmless guy, but he is mistaken for a bomb-throwing maniac. It seems that recently, a guy has been going into bars and when he is told to pay up, he responds by tossing a bomb and running...talk about your contrived plots!!! Anyway, when Fatty wanders into a very German pub, he is mistaken for this madman and craziness erupts. It's funny to watch but completely ridiculous and pointless. While not a bad film, I much prefer him in his usual type of films--ones that don't call for crazed bombers and other impossible to believe story elements!
