This film was not shot in Los Angeles, it was shot in Fort Lee NJ
13 December 2012 | by tmeyersSee all my reviews

The film was shot at Palisades Amusement Park in Fort Lee NJ (owned by Nick & Joe Schenck from 1910-1935) and also on Main Street in Fort Lee outside the exterior wall of the Triangle Studio which Arbuckle used to shoot films for Keystone in 1915-1916 such as He Did and He Didn't and The Waiter's Ball. Mack Sennet, who worked with DW Griffith in Fort Lee from 1909-1912 and formed Keystone Studio in Fort Lee in the summer of 1912 prior to the move west, sent Arbuckle to Fort Lee to his Triangle Studio in 1915-1916. Arbuckle directed and starred in some of his best shorts including some with Mabel Normand. Fort Lee was a crucial spot for Sennett in that he starred in and likely directed portions of the first American slapstick comedy, 1909's The Curtain Pole. This film by Griffith for Biograph, was also shot on Main Street in Fort Lee.
