Storyline

This story deals with the adventures of a "ham actor," who tries to "make good" in moving pictures. This Ham comes into the studio and assures everyone, including the directors, that he is the "real thing." He starts to do things. He not only gets into trouble with the cameraman and everyone else, but makes a general nuisance of himself. The film shows, besides its ludicrous story, many of the methods in film production. This is one of the scenes, which is characteristic of the story: A Seaside Scent. The Ham, in summer costume. The leading lady also in summer costume. Three girls in bathing suits, listening to orders, then step out of the picture. The Ham is supposed to flirt with the leading lady, makes her acquaintance, then he hears a cry of help. He bravely goes after one of the supposedly drowning bathing girls, but he trips and turns a somersault, and soon is in need of assistance himself. They drag him out, roll him on a barrel and there's an end of his moving picture career. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
