Roscoe's wife wants him committed to the No Hope Sanitarium for a cure from drink. He is greeted by blood spattered, cleaver-wielding Buster and a barely clad female patient. He eats a thermometer and must be rushed into surgery. 
Unusual in that Buster Keaton smiles on-camera.
Factual errors
When Fatty rests against a freshly numbered telephone pole, the number is transferred to the back of his shirt. However, the result is an identical copy of the original whereas it should really be a mirror image.
