On the morning after his wedding, Al St. John receives note from his uncle that he's on his way to give him a small fortune - on condition that he isn't married.
An elaborate plot to deceive the uncle is thought up.
Al St. John was the nephew of Roscoe Arbuckle, who, after the scandal, directed many of St. John's films anonymously, including this one.
Al St. John may not posses the immediate charisma of Chaplin, Keaton, or Lloyd, but he does have jaw-dropping acrobatic skills, which are in full display here as he falls, climbs, and jumps all over the frame in a series of gags choreographed with mathematically precision.
