Not a crash and burn, but didn't love it

This Keystone comedy film is notable for containing early appearances by Charley Chase and Harold Lloyd, and to make it easier to identify them, Charley plays a character called Harold. It's not part of the series of Keystone films from this time that co-starred Chase and Mae Busch, but it still uses him as a general light comic romantic lead. He doesn't get very much to do, but he does stand out from the crowd for those who are looking: there is a great moment where he enthusiastically waves goodbye to his sweetheart while being fought off by the obligatory angry, disapproving father.

There is a lot of plotting of a robbery in the first half of the film, then the second half primarily relies on the concept of a male robber disguised as a woman (who, of course, is flirted with a bit) and the tension that results from the threat of his discovery. There's only so far this goes, but then the film is topped off by a typically elaborate Keystone Cops chase, which is well executed.

Harold Lloyd is unrecognizable in a couple shots as a fruit vendor whose stand keeps getting knocked over. It's a fair example of a prototypical 1910s Keystone one-reeler, but not the funniest of them.
