An unimpressive but well intending man is given the chance to marry a popular actress, of whom he has been a hopeless fan. But what he doesn't realize is that he is being used to make the actress' old flame jealous.
A rich Yank docks his yacht in Mexico and steps ashore for adventure. Meanwhile, Conchita, the local beauty, accepts an engagement ring from the hot-headed Martino, who promises to kill any man who gains her favors. Conchita already has another boyfriend, Ferdinand the bull fighter. They conspire to find a gull, she'll pretend he is her new boyfriend, Martino will kill him and be arrested, and she'll be free to be with Ferdinand. Their mark is none other than our rich gringo who's already fallen for Conchita. He's an innocent abroad; what chance does he have?Written by
Buster Keaton's first short for Columbia is one of his worst. He plays a millionaire who sails to Mexico where he falls in love with a woman but what he doesn't know is that she has a psychotic boyfriend who will kill anyone. It goes without saying but this is an incredibly horrid short that doesn't feature a single laugh in it. This is a reworked version of Keaton's also horrible The Invader so neither version is really worth viewing. This is an incredibly lazy short as the same gags are used over and over throughout the film. The jokes weren't funny the first time around and they're even worse on the fifth time. These jokes include Keaton falling into the water as well as putting on the wrong outfit for Mexico.
