Buster goes away to the city to prove to his girl's father he can succeed. He writes her of his various jobs which she glorifies in her imagination. She sees a surgeon, he is a vet's assistant; she sees him cleaning up on Wall Street, he's really a janitor.Written by

The only film in which Buster Keaton cast Renée Adorée as his leading lady. Adorée was then a minor starlet at Fox Films, years before she won fame at MGM with The Big Parade (1925). Keaton reportedly made an uncredited cameo appearance in the 1929 MGM feature Tide of Empire (1929), starring Adorée. See more »
The most sad short film of Buster Keaton. Not only as unhappy love story but as portrait of a poor man. without any chance to have a reasonable job. Sure, letters, and dreams and gags and a bizarre end. And the scene of Hamlet. But the message of film, bitter and far to be comfortable, is so precise than it is far to be the familiar comedy A young man and his strange, absolutely unluck. Gived in most inspired way by Buster Keaton.
