Mabel ( Mabel Normand ) waits on the residents of a local boardinghouse, but her fondness for pranks finally leads to her dismissal. By a strange turn of fortune, Mabel finds herself in the possession of a travelling corset saleswoman's suitcase, whereupon she adopts the profession herself. While passing through a small town, Mabel decides to take a swim in the ocean, but as she frolics, her suitcase, which contains all of her clothing, is stolen. Forced to wear only her bathing suit, Mabel sets off in search of her clothing and learns that the police, having identified the suitcase as belonging to a jewel thief, are in search of her. Following several adventures, she discovers that the jewel robbery, which involved her friend Lena ( Flora Zabelle ), was only a publicity stunt.
Hard to find much information for this 1918 comedy starring Mabel Normand and Rod La Rocque, is now listed as lost. According to publicity, the scenes of Mabel Normand diving were shot at Sea Cliff, Long Island. Hopefully a copy of A Perfect 36 does survive and resurfaces for public viewing.
