Cure for Rheumatism probably should have been titled "A Cure for Gout." The central character, a dyspeptic elderly gentleman, hops around on a bandaged, gouty foot (a stock comedy "prop") of the era. Hoping to alleviate his pain, the old coot invests in a bottle of patent medicine. He uncorks the bottle, whereupon a swarm of bees flies out. Running madly out of the house to avoid the tiny terrors, the old man is indeed "cured" of his rheumatism, or gout, or whatever. The film ends with another comedy-movie cliché, as the "stung" members of the household are shown bandaged from head to toe.
