Star Hank Mann shared the directorial honors with Eddie Cline on the two-reel Keystone farce His Bread and Butter. Mann plays a waiter in a fancy restaurant, while Peggy Pierce is cast as his pretty young wife. After arranging for wifey to land a job as the café's cashier, Mann warns her not to reveal that they're married, lest proprietor Slim Summerville fire them both. The trouble begins when both Summerville and headwaiter Bobby Dunn fall for Pierce, driving Mann into paroxysms of insane jealousy. The physical contrast between the beefy Mann, the scarecrow-tall Summerville, and the diminutive Dunn paid off in boffo belly laughs during the slapstick denouement.
