Both Buster Keaton and Earnest Torrance gave a unforgettable performance. They played beautifully together as a father and son. Torrance is unsure his son is the man he hoped he should be, dandy Keaton unsure he can live up to his father's expectations and is dragged along. When his father's livelihood and freedom are threatened, the son is forced to prove himself to his father, his love and her father. Great story and plenty of laughs and thrills!
