Storyline

The Police Chief is tracking a band of four desperadoes, who vow revenge by blowing up his house. The desperadoes manage to kidnap one of the Chief's hapless constables - the boyfriend of the Chief's baby's nursemaid - by kidnapping the constable and the baby. They force the constable to plant the bomb while they hold the baby hostage. The constable is able to enter the house, and plant the note of the impending bomb. Mayhem ensues as the Chief, his wife, the nursemaid and the other constables search the house for the bomb, and try to find out where the baby is. Written by Huggo

The third anarchist film of the night!
9 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Tonight on Turner Classic Movies, they showed a bunch of early Mack Sennett comedies. Oddly, this was the third one they showed tonight which featured insane anarchists! A group of foreign-looking anarchists are chased out of the park. So, they plot their revenge and return a bit later--taking a cop and a baby prisoner. They force the cop to deliver bombs--or else they'll hurt the baby! This is a very dark plot and gives insight into the terror folks felt about the anarchist movement (which isn't a surprise based on some very high-profile murders by the group). However, it really ISN'T all that funny. In fact the only good thing about the film is an early appearance by Charley Chase as one of the villains.
