Fast-paced, lighthearted fun from popular silent-screen comedian Lloyd has him making his way from Los Angeles to New York while being pursued by the police. The slim plot line has archaeologist Lloyd being arrested when he gives his clothes to a stranger--a case of mistaken

identity--with the delay of his trial causing him to nearly miss an expedition to Egypt. So he heads out without waiting for the trial, befriending a couple of hobos, Stander and Walburn, and attracting a young girl, Welch, along the way. Film has no pretentions towards seriousness, but is just

good-hearted slapstick in the manner which Lloyd perfected. This was the great chasemaster's next-to-last picture, and his last one for Paramount. His leading lady, the winsome Welch, made her first featured appearance in this film.
