Bears And Bad Men


The Cutshaw family - a beastly woman (Blanche Payson) and her downtrodden and abused husband are at war with another family, the Slawsons (Larry Semon). Larry has an alarm clock which wakes him up with a feather that tickles his bare feet. Larry picks up a boot and throws it at the alarm but it ricochets off and ends up in a bucket of his feuding neighbour next door. Maw Cutshaw blames her husband and attacks him over it. A bearded man outside takes up his rifle and fires off a shot at the already-wounded husband, scoring a direct hit.
