Description by OLDIES.com:
PAGING LOVE (1923): Door-to-door salesman Monty can marry pretty Lois Boyd if he can sell her father’s self-help book. The first in a series of shorts from Monty Banks Productions.
THE COVERED SCHOONER (1923): Monty takes up sailing when he learns his girlfriend’s father wants her to marry a sea captain. This short cleverly incorporates a brief animated sequence.
WEDDING BELLS (1924): It’s Monty’s wedding day, and he can’t wait to kiss the bride...provided he can get over his hangover from last night’s bachelor party.
PAY OR MOVE (1924): Monty must collect back rent from a pair of professional swindlers. When the cops won’t help him, he dresses a dozen mannequins in police uniforms to intimidate the scoundrels.
CHASING CHOO CHOOS (1927): An abridged version of Monty’s feature Play Safe (1927), spotlighting the film’s acclaimed train chase. Monty jumps from train car to train car to rescue the lovely Virginia Lee Corbin in a sequence that rivals the best stunts of Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton.
