Storyline

Hank and Zeb do a vaudeville act at the Town Hall for the benefit of the new school house, and immediately the town tells them they are wasting their time in Hicksville; they should be on the stage. So they start out to become real actors. An interview with a city manager gets them a "tryout," and on the strength of this they telegraph home their "act is a hit." Their fate, however, is "the hook." A long walk home, lugging their trunk, is their task. Zeb enters an orchard to steal oranges, but is shot at. To make a get-away, he hides in the trunk. This move causes a lot of trouble for Hank. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
