The classic Pyramus and Thisbe legend takes a ribbing in this funny tale about two tenement lovers who are separated by a high backyard fence. Buster nonchalantly performs daring acrobatic feats as he traverses clotheslines, teeter-totters and telephone poles to reach his beloved.


Restored by Cineteca di Bologna at L'Immagine Ritrovata Laboratory in association with Cohen Film Collection.
