very short but effective comedy
This was a very short Charlie Chase comedy starring as the character "Jimmy Jump". Jimmy is a total wimp--so much so that even the neighborhood children pick on this man! Plus, his rival in love makes his life miserable by picking on him as well. Jimmy is so timid though, he never fights back--choosing in one case to sick him mom on the bullies! Later, Jimmy mistakenly thinks he's dying. So, with nothing to lose, he decides to give all the bullies their "comeuppance"--and it's great fun to watch him in action! While this is obviously NOT a deep film, it is short and well-paced and above all, entertaining. At only about 10 minutes, its well worth seeing and proves that Keaton, Lloyd and Chaplin were not the only funny men of the era.
