Storyline

Frequent comedy co-stars Fatty Arbuckle and Mabel Normand take viewers on a tour of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. Attractions shown include the U.S. Battleship "Oregon", the Australian convict ship "Success" (complete with such punishment devices as a flogging rack and a spiked Iron Maiden), the world's tallest flagpole (251 feet), the Court of Abundance, the Court of the Universe (with sunken garden) and the Tower of Jewels. Fatty and Mabel also visit Frisco's still-under-construction City Hall, accompanied by Frisco's then-Mayor James Rolph Jr. Also appearing in the film is opera star Ernestine Schumann-Heink. Written by Peter W. Many, Jr. (PMSusana)

Highly recommended to nostalgia and comedy fans.
19 February 2001 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This short film is both a comedy and an educational film, and works very well both ways as Fatty Arbuckle and Mabel Normand take us on a tour of the 1915 exposition's biggest attractions. Frequent co-stars Arbuckle and Normand had great comic chemistry, and there are quite funny moments along the way: Fatty getting popped in the face by Mabel after nearly slamming the spiked Iron Maiden on her, and opera star Ernestine Schumann-Heink's horrified reaction when Fatty attempts to sing for her. The film is also priceless as nostalgia, giving us a unique look at an America long vanished, and at a San Francisco still rebuilding after the 1906 earthquake. The film concludes with stunning night-time shots.
