Modern film fans will look at this, if they look at it at all, to see the young Oliver Hardy. Well, he's on the screen for about four seconds in which he's knocked over, does a decent 108 and shows his face for about half a second. He's far down under any notional cast list in this split-reeler about a tramp pursued by a cop, another tramp who looks like him and half a dozen incompetent Keystone-Kops imitators. The gags are unornamented and set up for speed, not humor. I am happy to see this one has survived, just as I am for any film of the era, but little more than that.

Bigger roles go to C.W. Ritchie, who later had a Broadway career, and Raymond McKee, who later starred in Sennett's SMITH FAMILY SERIES. There is some location shooting in what I would imagine to be St. Augustine, Florida in a park in which there is a well-maintained circular pond and some handsome palm trees. Otherwise, eh.
