The story follows a German immigrant who cannot speak English, and who as a result gets into all kinds of difficulties just trying to get across town by streetcar. Herr Müller's predicament is treated as an amusing situation full of comic possibilities, but at the same time the good-natured but helpless German is portrayed sympathetically, and there is something of an implicit suggestion that viewers ought to be sensitive to anyone with similar problems whom they might happen to meet.
The Henry Otto scenario is pretty clever in getting a lot out of the possibilities without ever seeming forced or labored. The cast (which includes Williams's wife) does a very nice job in remaining lively throughout the story without ever exaggerating too much. The story features some light but funny turns, and it is enjoyable to watch.
