This is the 2nd reel of the film. The 1st reel follows Aubrey's misguided journey from getting bodily thrown out of a racetrack, getting whisked across town via some "thrill-comedy" cartoon gags that land him in that garage by mistake. One well executed sequence involves a ladder on wheels with a tow rope over a cliff and provides a scene similar to one in Keaton's OUR HOSPITALITY, which was released less than 6 months earlier.
