Bobby Dunn has a run-in with a cop, gives him a sob story and has the cop getting an assortment of jobs for him in this decent states right thrill comedy.
Bobby Dunn was one of the myriad of Chaplin imitators in the 1910s; he kept the worn-down trappings -- mostly in the form of a bowler hat -- in his many comedies through the next decade. The thrill comedy covers several of the standard scenarios, better remembered from elsewhere; you won't see anything startlingly original, but if you want to see someone at risk of falling off a construction site, or blowing himself up in an engaging fashion, this will suit you.
Glen Cavender not only plays the cop who gets Bobby the jobs; he plays "Dynamite Dan", who threatens to blow Bobby to smithereens. cheaper than hiring two actors, I guess.
