I had the pleasure of watching this film with live organ music at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC on April 26, 2008. It was absolutely hilarious, just a great slapstick comedy in which an otherwise dull and ordinary professor suddenly finds himself escorting three different women to the same ritzy dance/dining hall. The film ends with a classic chase sequence in which everyone in the plot shows up angry and wants a piece of the professor! A young Reginald Denny plays the hapless professor and resembles a young Maurice Chevalier, who actually would have done pretty well in the part, too! If this delightful film ever makes it to DVD, be sure to check it out. It's at least as funny as Chaplin's The Circus or any number of Keaton features.
