~The Agent~
1922
~Plot Synopsis~
Larry Semon's second film under his new Vitagraph contract is already beginning to show the comic's
penchant for overspending on production -- the set includes an elaborate Mexican border town. In
this border town, Don Fusiloil (Oliver Hardy) runs a dance hall that illegally sells alcohol. Larry, a
federal agent, comes down to investigate and almost immediately runs afoul of the moonshiner who
is supplying Fusiloil. Meanwhile, a female agent (Lucille Carlisle) poses as one of the dance hall girls.
Larry tries unsuccessfully to blend in with his surroundings, and more through his own ineptitude
than anything else, finds out where the hooch is hidden. He and the girl wind up having to escape
from the bad guys. But it turns out that the whole predicament was a tall tale Larry has been relating
to Carlisle -- he is assuring her that situations like this one never happen in real life.
