Storyline

Sweethearts Jimmie Carter and Bessie Barnes work for Adolph Brock at the Acme Corporation. One day while he is out for a drive in his jalopy of a car, Jimmie spies a pretty young woman on horseback. He comes to her rescue after she falls off her horse and gets injured, he leading her to refuge in an abandoned cabin when it starts to rain heavily. Although she flirts with him, he, in turn attracted to her, wants to remain faithful to Bessie and resists his urges. When this woman mysteriously disappear on him, he can't stop thinking about her and follows her innuendo to meet with her at her apartment. All the while, he is unaware that she is Peggy Joyce, Brock's gold-digging fiancée. He is also unaware that Peggy has ulterior motives for coming on to him, which, in combination with her dangerous past, could lead to complications for all involved. Written by Huggo

An unusual change of pace.
23 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Mack Sennett comedy is a bit different in that it's more of a situation comedy than a bit of slapstick. While there are certainly gags, the plot seems a bit more important here--and that's not such a bad thing.

A man and his fiancée are trying to get to work on time, but getting a parking place is seriously difficult. Eventually, they do get to work--but only after the man (Raymond McKee) ends up blackening another man's eye (though this guy did have it coming). The guy ends up being a big client--and fortunately Raymond hides out until he leaves.

Later, Raymond meets up with a lady in distress and they end up spending the night together--even though both he and the lady have fiancés. In fact, it turns out the lady is the boss' girl! But what Raymond doesn't know is that this lady is actually carrying on with another man--the guy whose eye was blackened earlier in the film. What will become of all this? While there are some laughs here and there, as I said before this is more of a sit-com. Not brilliant but enjoyable.
