Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Having recently severed his ties with Triangle Films, comedy producer Mack Sennett served up his first two-reeler for Paramount release, A Bedroom Blunder. The plot is typical of the sort of farcical fare that Sennett had been churning out since 1912. Charles Murray stars as "An Average Husband," who while vacationing with his wife Eve Thatcher at a resort hotel tries to make time with pretty tourist Mary Thurman. Meanwhile, Thurman's roving husband Wayland Trask sets his sights on Murray's missus. The rest of the picture is a dizzying chase in and out of hotel bedrooms, with the flustered house detective (Pat Ford) bearing the brunt of the slapstick. Mack Sennett's fabled Bathing Beauties also make a few brief (and briefly attired) appearances.
