~718-22: Larry Semon & Dorothy Dwan~
~Plot Synopsis~
After the disappointing full-length feature The Girl in the Limousine, comedian-turned-director
Larry Semon returned to the two-reel format, at least for a while (coming up was Semon's flawed
epic The Wizard of Oz). To keep the slapstick moving at an even more heightened pace, Semon used
both of his favorite "heavies" -- Oliver Hardy and Frank Alexander. Another fine addition was
Semon's new wife, Dorothy Dwan, who reportedly did many of her own stunts. Slim Chance
(Alexander) and the Killer Kid (Hardy) are rum runners, and as a front they use a club called the
Dropem Inn. A girl detective by the name of Iva Method (Dwan) goes to investigate, but the bad guys
figure out her game and hold her hostage. The police chief assigns his son, Larry, and his partner,
Headquarters Hank (Fred Spencer), to bring in the rum runners, but the villains get wise to them,
too. Iva gets away and teams up with Larry to escape, but they are captured once again and taken to
the bad guys' ship. They make a daring escape and Larry proposes, only to discover that Iva is
already married to Hank.
