Buster is an absent-minded butterfly-chasing entomologist who stumbles into the midst of warring Indian tribes. This is the comedy in which he retreats backwards on his hands and knees across a suspension bridge, removing the staves in front of him and placing them behind to create his own caterpillar track!


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