This silent comedy short stars Jack Cooper--not to be confused with the child actor, Jackie Cooper. Cooper and his friend are making a batch of homemade beer--something illegal during the days of Prohibition. However, the bottles are poorly made so Jack has to get some more. Later, after the new bottles arrive, the cops come to the door. The boys think they're about to get caught, but instead the police are warning everyone about an escaped maniac. Later that night, imaginations run wild and they all think the crazed man is in the house. To make this easier to imagine, some of the bottles of home brew explode--adding to the chaos.
While this is far from a great film, it has a few decent gags and kept my interest. Nothing special, but still a decent little film from Volume 3 of OLD TIME COMEDY CLASSICS--a minor collection of mostly forgotten shorts.
