Jerry's Big Mystery (1917)
- Summaries (1)
Jerry dreams that because he has not paid his rent his landlord has fastened him to a fence and has thrown knives at him, which come within an inch of taking his life. He awakens with a start and finds Hank, the landlord, rapping at the door. Not receiving money, the landlord throws Jerry across the hall through a door and across a room into the lap of a woman. The woman's husband finds Jerry in this position and throws a pitcher at the intruder,, but misses him. The pitcher strikes Hank, knocking him down. Soon a fight is going on between Hank and the husband. The police take the belligerents away, but they escape by throwing the officers into a pond. Jerry proceeds to make love to Tiny. When Hank returns and demands admittance to Jerry's room, Jerry and Tiny hide in Jerry's trunk. Hank breaks down the door and, hearing the noise in the trunk, throws it out of the window. It just misses a policeman. The trunk turns over and proceeds from whence it came. Hank hears the trunk coming back and starts after Jerry, who darts out of a window, pursued by the policeman. He eludes him and hides under a dummy figure in front of a pawn shop. The policeman stands beside the dummy. Jerry kicks him and the policeman strikes at the dummy and knocks off its head. Jerry, in the figure, runs off. He makes his way into a barroom, where one of the terrified customers throws a hatchet, which lands where Jerry's head ought to be. Jerry then raids a crap game and then returns to Tiny. Hank is making love to Tiny and dives out of the window when he sees the headless object. Tiny faints, but Jerry revives her and then removes his dummy figure to prove that all is well. Jerry is now free to carry on his love-making unmolested.
