Accidents Can Happen

Directed by Charles Lamont
1926    20m
Two aviation aces land rather hard on a roof. Being woozy from the shock, they imagine that spring has returned, and that they are little Birdies, fluttering about. They flutter too far on one occasion, and land on the sidewalk, which they mistake for a pool where gay mermaids are wont to disport. An insurance agent dashes up and revives them with a bucket of water. The agent has his argument illustrated when a passing egg is almost scrambled by a reckless motorist. The boys immediately heed his advice and take out policies on each other's lives. A motor truck hook catches Percy Small and Johnny Stout follows. Through mud and all sorts of other disastrous elements, Percy is dragged. Finally, his trousers tear and Percy falls, bounding downhill, knocking Johnny off his feet. Percy lands in a concrete mixer and Johnny helps him to wash himself clean under a railway water tower. Then, they hear their little girl friend, Mabel, scream for aid. The boys dash in, and are stunned to see ghost-like critters ambling about. They battle their way through thick and thin, and when they succeed, Mabel thanks them for her father, explaining that he is trying out a new initiation trick.
