Description by OLDIES.com:

RISKS AND ROUGHNECKS (1917): Larry Semon displays some surprising athletic prowess as an avid reader of pulp novels who gets to act the hero when he sees a fair young lady being accosted by ruffians.

LOOKING FOR TROUBLE (1919): Snub Pollard plays a dandy coerced into a boxing match with a prize fighter over the hand of pretty Marie Mosquini.

ROBIN HOOD JR. (1923): This extremely rare four-reel parody of Douglas Fairbanks' Robin Hood (1922) features child stars Frankie Lee and Peggy Cartwright as pint-size versions of the famed archer and his ladylove Maid Marian. Cartwright was the original "darling" of Hal Roach's Our Gang series; she was featured prominently in the first six shorts released in 1922.

WATER WAGONS (1925): Andy Clyde and John J. Richardson are rival captains in a yacht race – but the real prize they're competing for is black-haired vamp Madeline Hurlock!

ONCE OVER (1928): Snub and his pal 'Fat' (Marvin Loback) are hobos chased out of a boxcar by the railroad detective. They wind up as waiters at a fancy restaurant, where the clientele is shocked by their uncouth behavior.
