The Reform Candidate was the third of Broadway favorite Maclyn Arbuckle's starring films -- and like the previous two, it was based on one of Arbuckle's popular stage vehicles. Though unlucky in love, Art Hoke (Arbuckle) is extraordinarily lucky in politics, ending up as the political boss of his district. When Frank Grandell (Malcolm Blevins) runs for mayor on the Reform ticket, Hoke savors the opportunity to get even with Grandell, who years earlier married Art's sweetheart. The animosity between the two politicians, and the stroke of fate that forces them to become friends and allies, is the dramatic crux of the film. Twenty-six-year-old Charlie Ruggles delivered the film's best performance as Hoke's chief henchman Looney Jim.
