Summary
  • The Inspector General: Georgi is an uneducated shill for a sleazy con-artist and showman. When he is discarded by the employer, the starving Georgi haplessly stumbles into a corruption-filled Russian hamlet, which is nervously preparing for a visit from the infamous Inspector General. When he is mistakenly identified as that royal official, the townspeople embrace the unsuspecting Georgi, catering to his every need and attempting to buy his favor
  • The paleface: Buster Keaton stars in this silent classic as an innocent butterfly collector who stumbles into the middle of a land dispute between some greedy oil men and the Native American tribe who occupies the land. When the tribe vows to kill the first "paleface" who enters their village, our butterfly collector is the unfortunate target. After surviving a burning at the stake due to some hilarious acrobatics and some fire-resistant clothing, the butterfly collector is made a member of the tribe and assists them in foiling the plans of the oil men
  • That gang of mine: In spite of the ribbing he gets from the rest of the East End Kids, Mugs wants to become a jockey to impress his girl. Mugs seems to be in luck when a stablehand agrees to have him ride his thoroughbred horse in exchange for the gang raising the entrance fee for an upcoming race. But when Mugs gets involved in a horse-fixing scheme, to the rescue comes the rest of the gang
  • The son of Monte Cristo: A small Balkan country is in the grips of a cruel despot, Count Gurko Lanen, who has taken over the throne from the rightful ruler, Grand Duchess Zona. The visiting Count of Monte Cristo, acting as an epicene dandy banker, works to help the Grand Duchess in her cause by becoming a masked avenger who battles the Count's forces for the good of the people
  • Captain Kidd: An adapted account of famed 17th century pirate captain William Kidd, who, in an effort to enhance his fortune, persuades King William III to hire him as the guardian of a royal ship carrying a cargo of his majesty's treasure. Kidd has the task of keeping enemy ships at bay to allow the King's riches a safe voyage, but the Captain has his own lascivious plans for the loot
