Synopsis: Charley, an apartment-dweller, is rivals with his neighbor for the love of a girl. The unlucky fruit-stand vendor beneath Charley’s window is also a rival, and plugs Charley in the face with a tomato. For revenge, Charley empties the bullets of his revolver into the fruit-seller’s peanut-roaster, and the explosive results – complete with cops, chases, and over-the-cliff falls – make a raucous finale.
