This silent classic, from Keystone Studios and directed by Mack Sennett, is considered one of the better Keystone Kops shorts. When his friend Walrus is shot, Ambrose brings him to his house to treat him. Once there, Walrus begins to flirt with Ambrose's wife and eventually runs off with her. Ambrose chases them on horseback and the pursuit is joined by the fabled Keystone Kops where it comes to a climatic ending on a bridge.
