Out of work, Buster tries various ways to commit suicide. At last he tries "poison" from a bottle containing booze. The president of a sporting club speaks of the need for a sportsman to promote the club and drunken Buster gets the job for which he must learn fishing, hunting and riding. —Ed Stephan <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Fun to Watch Even in Fragmented Form
This short comedy only exists now in a fragmented form, which is too bad, but it's still fun to watch. The restoration on Kino video pieces together almost the entire film, with notes to explain the parts that could no longer be found. It has Buster as a despondent victim of "Hard Luck", and combines some good morbid gags with a series of silly adventures. Because what's left is quite choppy, it will best be enjoyed by those who are used to very old films, but it has some good material and a couple of very funny scenes. Most Keaton fans should enjoy it.
