Slow moving Slim Summerville and fidgety and flibberty gibbet Zasu Pitts did a series of B film comedies for Hal Roach. This is the first of them I've seen. I'm betting some of the others are better for both these performers.
I doubt anyone got near Niagara Falls for shooting, it just looked like a lot of background shots used.
Slim and Zasu are looking to recapture some of their youth in that most romantic of places Niagara Falls. Along the way they meet a young couple who've been thrown together by chance, Tom Brown and Marjorie Woodworth. Slim and Zasu get the idea these two are prospective bride and groom. Take it from there in this comedy of errors.
I have to say that Summerville was the most insistent of busybodies. Today no one would care if Woodworth and Brown were getting married or just shacking up. But it was a different age and that's what dates this film so.
What you normally see from Pitts and Summerville you get in Niagara Falls. For fans of the leads.
