Talk about a strange plot for a film!
23 May 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Unknown to Charley, the Best Man at his wedding is secretly in love with the Bride and he wants to derail the wedding. So, he passed on an anonymous note to him saying that his fiance has a wooden leg. Now you'd THINK this would not stop the wedding, but Charley is a jerk and runs...leaving the woman he loves at the alter. The rest of the film consists of Charley on his honeymoon without his bride...until he eventually comes to his senses!

This is a weird plot...really weird. This uniqueness is much of the reason I liked the short...and it's worth seeing. Among Charley Chase's best? No...but still quite enjoyable.
