Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The chase for this film was shot in San Francisco, far from Keaton's Los Angeles studio. Historians suggest that Keaton wanted to be close to his friend Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle who was on trial there for the murder of [?] Virginia Rappe.
  • Although existing prints are incomplete with such scenes as Buster working in a hospital etc remaining lost, a scene in which Renee Adoree imagines Keaton to be a policeman have been rediscovered and restored and is presented as an extra on the Keaton Plus DVD available from Kino, though not in this version.
