This dazzling comedy showcases Keaton's genius for super-sized slapstick as it tells the story of an eligible young bachelor who must marry by 7:00 p.m. in order to receive a $7 million inheritance. After bungling a proposal to his longtime sweetheart (Ruth Dwyer), Jimmie (Keaton) embarks on a desperate quest for a bride. He experiences a hilarious series of rejections, until a newspaper announcement of Jimmie's predicament provides him with more fiancees than he can handle, setting in motion the most epic and surreal chase sequence of Keaton's career.
