Storyline

Willie Nutt, an aspirant to athletic honors, thinks he sees some easy money when he reads Professor Brawn's notice in the lobby of a theater offering $100 to anyone who will put him on his back. Willie resolves to make a try, and passing a book store observes in the window a volume labeled, "How to Wrestle." No sooner seen than bought, and Willie immediately goes into training. Willie reads the book as he walks home, and becomes interested in the passage, "grab your opponent by the calf of the left leg and force him on his knee." Willie wants to experiment, and a passing Chinaman, with a bundle of wash on his back, is the victim. The two are soon struggling together, and a lively match ensues until the Chinaman breaks away and runs down the street yelling "murder" and "police." Willie's next victim is an automobilist, stretched out under his machine, hammering at a loose bolt. Willie drags the chauffeur from under the machine, throws down a blanket for a mat and proceeds to lay about ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It bears a moral plainly enough
28 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One of the comedies which is lively enough to keep one interested and funny enough to keep one laughing. But it bears a moral plainly enough, to let professional wrestlers alone, no matter what valuable instructions can be obtained from a book. The series of adventures along the way, which are mere training incidents, are amusing, but when the actual test comes it is funnier than all the rest. And when the wrestler picks Willie up, and after handling him like a rubber ball, deposits him flat on his back on the mat, the finale is worthy what has preceded it. No wonder, after all his misadventures, that Willie firmly resolves not to attempt any more easy money with wrestlers again. He is wise in knowing when he has had enough. - The Moving Picture World, October 1, 1910
