Storyline

Sweethearts Jimmie Carter and Bessie Barnes work for Adolph Brock at the Acme Corporation. One day while he is out for a drive in his jalopy of a car, Jimmie spies a pretty young woman on horseback. He comes to her rescue after she falls off her horse and gets injured, he leading her to refuge in an abandoned cabin when it starts to rain heavily. Although she flirts with him, he, in turn attracted to her, wants to remain faithful to Bessie and resists his urges. When this woman mysteriously disappear on him, he can't stop thinking about her and follows her innuendo to meet with her at her apartment. All the while, he is unaware that she is Peggy Joyce, Brock's gold-digging fiancée. He is also unaware that Peggy has ulterior motives for coming on to him, which, in combination with her dangerous past, could lead to complications for all involved. Written by Huggo

A Rainy Knight (1925)

** (out of 4)

As with a lot of Mack Sennett two-reelers, this one here is basically two films rolled into one. The first portion deals with a couple trying to get to work but they're having a problem finding a place to park, which eventually leads to a fight. The second half has the man running into a beautiful woman and being forced into a cabin together, which isn't going to sit well with either of their significant others. A RAINY KNIGHT is a mildly entertaining film but there just wasn't enough laughs to make it worth sitting through unless you're like me and just like watching every film you can. Raymond McKee was actually pretty good in the lead role and I thought he displayed a rather good comic timing. It certainly didn't help that the screenplay didn't give him much to work with but I still really enjoyed him and would like to see him in something better. The best part of the film would have to be the first sequence as McKee keeps trying to find a place to park and each time he gets one something will happen to cause him to lose it. The second half doesn't feature anything that I enjoyed too much, although the sequence where the beauty is stripping was well handled.
