Ever been chased by a cannon ball? Chester Conklin has. See Chester run! The mayhem begins when a cigarette-smoking Chester arrives with his two assistants to inspect the boom powder co. factory. Boom has just perfected the ultimate cannon ball! All cast members play their parts very well, but Conklin as the shifty woman-chasing inspector stands out prominently above them all. He knew exactly how to portray this part. The special effects are quite interesting for 1915. A cannon ball chases people, a bridge is shot out by a cannon, and fires and explosions rage everywhere. The high standard of acting and the novel special effects make this comedy one of Keystone's best.
