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

Mack Sennett had been the King of Comedy for a decade, but his audience had remained largely unchanged. His stuff played well in the small towns of the countryside but if the big critics liked them, they didn't let the news get into the newspapers.

Given the changes of the 1920s, the movie audience had changed. There was now a large, middle class audience and they wanted something that looked more real. They wanted people who looked like them and plots that made sense. Sennett had already tapped into this vein with his features for Mabel Normand, but he was ready to try for it in his short subjects too. So director Lloyd Bacon, one of the Warner Brothers' workhorse directors in the 1930s, directed this one with much more verisimilitude than you'd expect from the studio that was also producing SUPER-HOOPER-DYNE LIZZIES. There are several scenes which are not only funny, they are also charming -- the one in which Raymond McKee has rescued Eugenia Gilbert and she changes out of her wet clothes behind a backlit sheet is excellent.

Sennett would have his staff continue in this vein later in the "Smith Family" saga, again with McKee in the lead. Although he is remembered for his wild slapstick, he was always on the lookout for new audiences to conquer.
