Jeffries Jr. (1924): Bespectacled bumbler Jimmy Jump is tired of being picked on so he takes boxing lessons from real-life former heavyweight champion James J. Jeffries --who soon discovers he's got his hands full with this eager acolyte!
Fighting Fluid (1925): Jimmy Jump is determined to declare his love for the boss' daughter. He finds the courage to make plain his intentions after a few drinks from the boss' water cooler -- which is actually filled with bootleg liquor!
Bad Boy (1925): Jimmy Jump -- this time billed as "Jimmie" -- returns home from college and is immediately put to work in his father's iron works so he can toughen up. But Jimmie is also a mama's boy, and finds himself torn between his domineering parents.
Innocent Husbands (1925): Charley Chase plays Melvin, a put-upon husband whose wife constantly suspects him of being a womanizer. No matter how innocent his intentions or actions, poor Melvin always seems to end up in compromising positions with the opposite sex.
