Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on the once-popular "musical extravaganza" of the same name, McFadden's Flats is a serviceable vehicle for Keystone Studio veterans Charlie Murray and Chester Conklin. The stars are respectively cast as boisterous Irishman Dan McFadden and stingy Scotchman Jock MacTavish, eternally bickering neighbors in a small rural town. It must needs be that Dan's daughter Mary Ellen (Edna Murphy) falls in love with Jock's son Sandy (Larry Kent). Several slapsticky confrontations later, the warring dads become resigned to the marriage of their offspring, and Jock even saves Dan from financial ruin. McFadden's Flats was remade in 1935, with Walter C. Kelly and Andy Clyde in the leads.
