Summary:
[Back stage] This film contains many of the routines Buster used in the "Three Keatons" stage act, and can rightly be called the first Keaton directed film.

[Good night, nurse!] Arbuckle's surrealistic nightmare where he escapes the operating table, runs away and inadvertently enters a "Great Heavyweight Race." Arbuckle also gives his best "in drag" performance, playing a flirting nurse to Keaton's doctor.

[Coney Island] Presents Roscoe's nephew, Al St. John, who does a series of "tit-for-tats" with Arbuckle to win a girl, only to have her end up with Buster Keaton.

[Rough house] Contains Arbuckle's famous "roll dance," where at the breakfast table, he sticks two forks each into a separate roll and then uses them to do a parody of Charlie Chaplin's walk. Chaplin, appreciating the gag, later expanded on it for use in his film "The Gold Rush."

[Garage] Presents Arbuckle and Keaton as a team who find various ways of destroying cars, how not to clean oil stains and how not to fight fires.  Read more...

Abstract:

[Back stage] This film contains many of the routines Buster used in the "Three Keatons" stage act, and can rightly be called the first Keaton directed film.

[Good night, nurse!] Arbuckle's surrealistic nightmare where he escapes the operating table, runs away and inadvertently enters a "Great Heavyweight Race." Arbuckle also gives his best "in drag" performance, playing a flirting nurse to Keaton's doctor.

[Coney Island] Presents Roscoe's nephew, Al St. John, who does a series of "tit-for-tats" with Arbuckle to win a girl, only to have her end up with Buster Keaton.

[Rough house] Contains Arbuckle's famous "roll dance," where at the breakfast table, he sticks two forks each into a separate roll and then uses them to do a parody of Charlie Chaplin's walk. Chaplin, appreciating the gag, later expanded on it for use in his film "The Gold Rush."
