Producer/director Mack Sennett and actor Buster Keaton, two masters of silent-film comedy, teamed up for the first time with this sound two-reeler released by Educational. Keaton stars as Milton, a disappointed romantic who has sworn off women. He gives a lift to a female hitchhiker (Lona Andre), whom he happily discovers is also a hurt soul and has sworn off men. Their trip together runs into interference from an aggressive driver (Stanley J. Sandford) who later reappears after the two have set up camp. He starts putting the moves on the woman, but when Milton's ex-girlfriend (Kitty McHugh) shows up, she gets into a fight with the interloper and gives Milton and his new pal the chance to slip away.
