This short comedy stars Sid Smith, Paul Parrott and Vernon Dent, with Smith as an innocent automobile fanatic who is cheated by crooked lawyer Parrott. Dent is his dim-witted assistant who poses as a doctor. A slight, silly comedy. — Carl Bennett

This DVD-R edition has been mastered from a good to very-good 16mm reduction print of the 1924 rerelease of the film. The slightly faster than natural speed video transfer is a bit contrasty, with lost highlight detail and deep shadows.
The film is accompanied by a small orchestra music score lifted from an LP record, crackles and all.
