Storyline

Two men like the same woman, and she prefers the large, strong one over the smaller, nimble dandy. The rivalry first comes to a head when she rejects the dandy in front of a Chinese laundry; a fight ensues, and the big guy's dog adds to the dandy's humiliation. Then, that night, during a dance held at the neighborhood fitness center, the dandy hires some thugs to beat up his rival. The plan goes awry, which precipitates chaos. Fido's on hand to add to the confusion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fatty's Faithful Fido (1915)

*** (out of 4)

Fatty and his bitter rival (Al St. John) get into a fight but Fatty's dog Fido saves the day. Later in the evening the rival hires two thugs to jump Fatty but the plan backfires. This is a pretty good short that moves by pretty quickly and contains some funny stunts and a couple nice fight sequences. The highlight is certainly the dog, real name Luke, who steals every single scene he's in. There's a great chase sequence where the dog has to climb up a ladder and do various other stunts.
