Stan Laurel was still a few years off from fine-tuning his slow-moving, dim-witted comic persona (and teaming up with Oliver Hardy), and in this two reel film from producer Joe Rock, he reverts to a cruder, more hyperactive personality. He plays a gob, or sailor, stationed on a ship that sails into a South American port. The gob spends most of his time following around his superior officer, who has received an invitation to dine with one of the local families. The gob invites himself along and meets Grenadine (Julie Leonard), a friend of the officer's. After the officer leaves, the gob cozies up to the girl until her sweetheart, Pete Vermicelli (Glen Cavender), shows up. Vermicelli gives chase, bringing a number of his men along. The gob's officer winds up thrashing the bunch, who turn out to be outlaws, but somehow the gob is the one who gets the credit.
