Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle directed himself in this Keystone short. In it, he wants to take a girl (Arbuckle's real-life wife, Minta Durfee) to a fancy dress ball, but he doesn't have the right outfit. His rival does have the suit, however, so in spite of the fact that the guy is a much smaller size, Fatty steals it. In retaliation, the rival sneaks into the ball and, without Fatty's knowledge, rips open the pants seam...the rest can be guessed. One of the funniest of Arbuckle's Keystone flicks.
