Many years ago both Gloria Swanson and Wallace Beery started their careers in short subjects like this one they did for Mack Sennett. At the time they did Teddy At The Throttle they were married, but that didn't last much longer than this Mack Sennett short.
Gloria is an innocent young heiress and her guardian is the grasping and greedy Beery who also has control of the fortune that young Bobby Vernon is coming into. He must prevent the two from marrying lest Vernon discover that Beery has been living off his inheritance.
His efforts foiled Beery in the true Snidely Whiplash tradition ties Gloria to railroad tracks. But he reckons without her trusty Great Dane Teddy who's so smart that Rin Tin Tin should go to remedial obedience school to catch up. What Teddy does to save Gloria from being pancaked by the locomotive is a feat that will leave you gasping as much as 1917 audiences must have.
Nice to see Beery and Swanson in their salad days working for Mack Sennett.
