The above title readily suggests it customers that this film is purely a comedy conceit. The story briefly told is as follows: a housewife, while freezing cream, discovers she needs more ice. Calling her son, she sends him in search of the necessary article. The boy finds an iceman, secures his purchase and starts homeward by the longest route he can find. His many adventures are graphically depicted, each one being funnier than the previous one, and every one should command screams of laughter, starting with a huge piece of ice, each time he is delayed the ice dwindles in size, until, upon arriving home, he presents his mother with a piece discernible to the naked eye. His enraged parent bestows upon him a deserved thrashing. Written by
