This is one of a million comedy shorts of the 20s showcasing so-so pratfalls in the middle of Los Angeles, then a very pretty city. The comedy -- involving a collection agency employee who makes up wild excuses to explain his tardiness -- is better when the jokes are on the road, and involve how cars can be smacked into each other, flipped around, and seem to have mischievous minds of their own. The lead comic has no particular personality, though it is a little unusual that our nebbishy hero is employed as a repo man.
Nothing special. It is amazing, though, we can still talk about it 85 years after it was made.
