Storyline

Robert Tobey's camera captures the many Hollywood notables gathered at Ken Maynard's ranch for a Buffalo Barbecue. 'Ken Maynard' entertains with the help of his horse "Tarzan." The scene shifts to various stars sitting for portraits and masks fashioned by Mrs. Lenore Gardner and her son Jack. 'Frank McHugh' is shown at home cooling off his bathing-suited kids with water from a garden hose, while Madge Bellamy is seen walking her pet Scotty. The reel ends with many stars shown as players and spectators at the West Side Tennis Club. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
