Buster goes away to the city to prove to his girl's father he can succeed. He writes her of his various jobs which she glorifies in her imagination. She sees a surgeon, he is a vet's assistant; she sees him cleaning up on Wall Street, he's really a janitor.Written by

Although existing prints are incomplete with such scenes as Buster Keaton working in a hospital etc remaining lost, however, a scene in which Renée Adorée imagines Keaton to be a policeman have been rediscovered and restored and is presented as an extra on the Keaton Plus DVD available from Kino.

Buster Keaton and Renee Adoree team up in a comedy in which our hero tries to make something of himself for his girl back home. Trouble is, as he's writing her of his successes she dreams of something far different than he's actually doing! Funny in places with the usual emphasis on stuff going wrong and the odd stunt, and some good camera work. Entertaining little movie.
