Hubby and wifey are in love, but he's henpecked by her mother. A nip of whiskey gives him Dutch courage, and he storms out, declaring he won't be a domestic slave anymore. He heads for a park bench where a photographer mistakes him for a seated woman's sweetheart. The tintype of the two of them falls into the hands of the woman's husband, whose jealous rage frightens our hero. He abruptly leaves town, telling wifey he'll be away on business. Wifey doesn't need her house while he's away, so, unknown to hubby, she moves in with mom and rents the house to the couple from the park. When our hero returns home sooner than expected, the renter has another attack of jealousy. Written by
You know, I really like this film. It's got a great story, very good acting, and some genuinely funny moments. The story deals with a misunderstanding generated by an itinerant photographer in the park. He photographs Fatty and Louise together in a totally innocent embrace without their knowledge. When they (and their spouses) find out about this seemingly not so innocent tintype, all hell breaks loose! Edgar thinks Fatty is having an affair with his wife! Out come the guns! Can Fatty really outrun a speeding bullet? Arbuckle is also ably at the helm of this fine farce comedy. Good acting plus a fast-paced story add up to a highly amusing and enjoyable two-reeler that is still guaranteed to get laughs after all these years.
