Summary
  • The saphead (1920; 77 min.): Bertie Van Alstyne, the spoiled son of a powerful Wall Street financier, tries to escape the wealth and comfort that is foisted upon him. He pursues individuality in a series of comic misadventures in the speakeasies of New York, the altar of matrimony and the floor of the American stock exchange
  • The high sign (1921; 21 min.): Buster is unwittingly involved in a radical secret society known as the Blinking Buzzards, stumbling from assassin to bodyguard in a romantic misadventure
  • One week (1921; 19 min.): dreams of placid domesticity are systematically demolished in the story of a couple's determination to build a prefabricated honemoon cottage
