This Keystone comedy, which features some of the studio's lesser lights, has a surprisingly dramatic plot line. Duke Don Ferdi (Harry McCoy) has fallen on hard times and is forced to play the piano in a cabaret to live. When he sees a picture of a wealthy American girl (Mary Thurman), he becomes determined to win her, forgetting all about his sweetheart (Julia Faye). A pair of crooks (Dave Anderson and Lige Crommie) rifle the Duke's belongings and, on the back of a portrait of one of his ancestors, they find directions which will supposedly lead them to a treasure. While following the instructions, the crooks kidnap the American girl, uncover the Duke's job at the cabaret and, in general, cause a lot of trouble. They steal a medal of the Duke's and go to the spot where the treasure supposedly is. They are met there by both the police and Ferdi. But the box they have dug up only contains a joke that's as old as the ancestor in the portrait. The rich American girl now throws over the penniless Duke, but his former sweetheart is there to ease his misery.
