This late Mack Sennett short subject is fairly unremarkable in terms of composition, although by this stage his productions had settled down, losing the erratic nature of his early sound films, in which one was very funny and the next a rather boring retread of one of his standard scripts.
In this one, Emerson Treacy and Franklin Pangborn are competing for the charms of Joyce Compton, with Treacy a rather timid young man, and Pangborn a he-man -- he shoots, he rides and he punches out Treacy. The real fun of this short is provided by a dream sequence, but mostly by the ever-funny Walter Catlett, in overwhelming mode, as he instructs Treacy in how to win Miss Compton's affections. Catlett had a long career on Broadway and later in the movies and one can see why. So enjoy this one.
