This Mack Sennett two-reel comedy features Oliver Hardy, who was on loan from the Hal Roach studios. Arthur Young (Matty Kemp) is in love with Ethel St. John (Mildred June), but he has no money and she wants to be in movies. Gordon Bagley (Hardy) also wants to marry her, and she accepts his proposal, providing that he make her a motion picture star. Bagley agrees, and finances a film for her, using her friends as cast and crew. Arthur plays her love interest, which does not thrill Bagley in the least. Finally the film is finished, and it is screened for everyone involved. Not only does Bagley hate the love scenes, he realizes that the picture is awful and was a total waste of money. Just so it isn't a complete loss, he grabs Ethel and drags her off to the minister. Arthur, however, is close behind and he manages to grab Ethel and they escape.
