Charley Chase's third two-reeler for Columbia was also one of his best for the studio. It begins with Charley on board a ship, saying good-bye to the girl he fell in love with during the voyage (Peggy Stratford). When he gets home, he has to marry a woman he hasn't even seen since childhood -both sets of parents arranged the pairing years before. His valet, however, comes up with a way to solve the problem -- if Charley acts crazy, the girl's father will call the marriage off and he'll be free to marry his shipboard sweetheart. The plan starts off great -- Charley shows up at a party being held by the bride's family and his oddball behavior drives everyone else around him nuts. But then he sees his bride-to-be for the first time in 20 years...and it's the girl from the ship! A jumbled attempt at explaining himself to her father makes it clear that Charley will never resolve things, so he grabs the girl by the hand and they dash off to elope. Her angry father chases after them, but he's stopped by the ambulance attendants from the local asylum. They think he's the madman and cart him away. This picture was actually a remake of Chase's 1926 film, Crazy Like a Fox. Columbia recycled the plot a couple more times, first as 1943's You Dear Boy and in 1952 as Happy Go Wacky, both starring Vera Vague.
