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 »
A young man must go into to big city to prove himself to the father of his girlfriend. He tries different professions and sends a letter home every time, so his girlfriend can imagine her sweetheart making big career.
Although the film is survived only partially - the dream sequences of Buster working as a surgeon and a wall street wolf are some that are gone. Luckily, the missing scenes are not that important in the storytelling point, and the film's flow is quite untouched, by the missing scenes. The film is worth to watch only for the fantastic chase scene where Buster is running from the whole city police.
