Charley Chase comedy has him playing a man afraid of dogs. A chance meeting on a phone leads him to the home of a beautiful woman whose parents are forcing her into a marriage with a no good nobleman. Chase, and that charm, must try to work over the girl but more importantly, impress her mom with his dog skills. This is a pretty good comedy that features Chase working well with the dog, known as Buddy. The two man quite a few shorts together and were a pretty good team considering how many laughs they could create. Just take a look at the scene where Chase tries to give him a bath and they both end up in the water. I think the majority of their scenes together are extremely funny and certainly more entertaining than the rest of the film. The entire subplot of the woman not wanting to marry the man is pretty boring and doesn't add too many laughs. One good scene is when Chase thinks he's suppose to give the man a bath.
