Storyline

Charley is plagued with failure and with his brother-in-law, who's allergic to labor. When he decides to take the family on a camping trip, his wife learns about a contest sponsored by a pen company, with the first prize being an ocean trip. To win the prize Charley has to sell those pens - surprisingly he wins, but the ship turns out to be a wreck on it's last trip to the scrapyard. To make things worse they accidentally leave their young daughter on the dock and the ship sails without her. What else can go wrong on this trip?

Did You Know?

Crazy Credits

Except for Charley Chase, whose name appears above the title, there is no cast list. Actors are introduced by inter-title cards just before they appear on the screen. The IMDb cast list therefore uses this "order of appearance" sequence. See more »

A lesser but still funny Charley Chase short from his peak period. All not as tightly plotted as MIGHTY LIKE A MOOSE, it has its amusing moments as Charley and his family -- his wife, Katherine Grant, his useless brother-in-law, Oliver Hardy, and a child they picked up on the dock while losing their daughter take an ocean voyage in an ocean liner built of swiss cheese. That's a non-screaming Fay Wray as a housewife Charley tries to sell a squirting fountain pen to.
