One of the better of the Paul Parrott comedies for Roach -- his poor health caused him to retreat behind the screen where he directed some very funny comedies starring Laurel & Hardy, the Girl Friends series and a few for his brother, Charlie Chase.
Here this tale of how Paul tries to elope with Jobyna Ralston starts out with an excellent sequence in which his opera hat gives him a lot of trouble. The story starts in soon after that with the usual issues and one or two excellent gags thrust in. The ending of the print I saw is rather abrupt, but that is a not uncommon issue with a lot of comedy shorts from this period. Perhaps the print was damaged or perhaps they simply ran out of film.
