The dashing young Douglas Fairbanks, acting legend, stars in this comedy spoof about a crazy inventor that will do almost anything to please his girlfriend. The opening scene, showing Fairbanks as Charlie Jackson, grand-nephew of President Andrew Jackson, could have been a template for a scene in 'The Jetsons' futuristic comedy cartoon show. He has invented everything one could think of to make life better, including a machine to wash him while in the bath.
But this plot is a lot more complicated that just the life of an eccentric inventor. It involves the crazy inventor, his naive girlfriend, the maid, a gambler, a con man and a jealous woman. Be careful when watching this silent classic comedy, because you may laugh so hard that you spill your bowl of popcorn, and soda may spurt out of your nose. - Don't say you weren't warned!
