Arbuckle and Normand followed the Keystone tradition of showing up at an actual event and using that as background for a largely improvised film. The event in this case was the Panama-California Exposition, held in Balboa Park in San Diego, California in 1915-1916. The film is 14 minutes long. It was released on January 23, 1915.
