~Red Hot Tires~
1925
~Plot Synopsis~
Monte Blue and Patsy Ruth Miller star in this snappy farce. While out on a drive, society man Al
Jones (Blue) spies pretty Betty Loweden (Miller), and it causes him to lose control of his car, which
collides with a steamroller. As a result, Jones loses his nerve and he takes to riding horses instead of
cars. This doesn't help much, since Betty, who has a penchant for speed, causes him to fall off the
horse. Betty's father (Fred Esmelton) is the chief of police and he is determined to cure her of her
wild ways, so he puts her in jail. Jones, ever-faithful, demands to be put behind bars himself, and is,
only to discover that Betty has already gotten out. Once he is able to get out himself (which he does
only with a lot of difficulty), he gets his nerve back because Betty has been kidnapped by crooks. His
fear of cars gone, he leaps in an auto and gives chase. He finds their lair and bravely thrashes them
all, which wins Betty's heart.

Plot Synopsis by Janiss Garza, Allmovie.com

The first time Al Jones sees Elizabeth Lowden, he becomes so distracted that he runs his car into a
steamroller. The second time he sees her, Elizabeth's car frightens his horse, causing him to fall. She
rushes him to a hospital, and her father, who is the local chief of police, throws her in jail for
speeding. Al becomes argumentative at this injustice and soon joins Elizabeth behind bars. He is
released, and in an effort to get back in, he arouses the enmity of a gang of crooks. The crooks later
kidnap Elizabeth, and Al rescues her. Overcoming his fear of automobiles, they elope in a speedster.
