Storyline

George, a somewhat "unathletic" young man, falls for Clarice, a healthy, athletically inclined young woman. Unfortunately for George, however, a strapping, musclebound stud is also after Clarice, and she seems to prefer him to George. After reading an article by a female writer saying that women prefer the "caveman" type of man, George decides that if that what it takes to get Clarice, then that is what he will be.

Well Executed

King Baggot loves Violet Horner, but he is a mild, ineffective guys, so she goes for annoying William Shay. Baggot is tired of this and decides to go on a course of exercise.

The time for this Alley-Oop attitude has passed, but viewed purely as a mechanical comedy, it's certainly well done. Although Baggot remains as paunchy as ever over his three-week course of exercise, it's a lot of fun to watch him and compare his attitude and those of his gym-mates; in his first appearance at the arena of sports, he's a complete dub. After the titles inform us it's his final lesson, matters have changed a lot.

The set design of the gym is a little bare and odd.
