Apparently the main characters in this silent short, James and George, were based on comic strip characters though I have never seen this strip. The pair are seen driving down the street in an extremely dilapidated vehicle and they stop when they see a sign on a restaurant window asking for buyers OR someone willing to trade for the business. Well, given that the car is a mess, they figure to make a killing by trading it for the restaurant. The deal is made, but the boys soon see why the guy was so eager to make the trade--the business is very, very poor. Heck, after giving it a try, they couldn't get a single customer. And, by the time the film ends, they're back to where they started.
Nothing particularly earth-shaking here, but the film is amiable and worth watching if you are a fan of the genre.
