Buster Keaton is sadly miscast in this two-reel comedy about the capture of a jewel thief. Mainly nonstop slapstick, the short left no room for Keaton to even begin to develop his character. The Taming of the Snood marked the Keaton series debut of Elsie Ames, an eccentric dancer whom Columbia was grooming for comedy stardom. The attempt proved singularly unsuccessful.
