Stuart Holmes spent much of the 1920s playing villains. He even played them in comedy two-reelers for Hal Roach. Here, he gives funnyman Charley Chase a hard time. Chase has been afraid of dogs ever since he was a little boy, and this causes him no amount of trouble. He is chased into a phone booth where Holmes, as a phony Duke, was making a call. The phone has been left off its receiver, and Charley winds up talking to the girl at the other end of the line -- it's Mildred June, who desperately doesn't want to marry the Duke. Charley decides to help her out and gets a job as a butler in her home. One of his first duties is to wash the dog, which happens to be named Duke. Charley grabs Duke the human, instead of Duke the dog, and mayhem ensues. Eventually the human Duke is revealed to be bogus, and Charley wins Mildred.
