Summary disc 1. His picture in the papers. A young man can marry his sweetheart only if he becomes famous enough to have his picture printed in the paper. -- Mystery of the leaping fish. A satire on Sherlock Holmes which concerns a professional incident in the life of the world's greatest scientific detective. -- Flirting with fate. A struggling artist's heart is broken when his sweetheart is promised in marriage to someone else --
disc 2. The matrimaniac. Jimmy Conroy wants to marry Marna Lewis. However, Mr. Lewish has chosen another man for his daughter to marry. So Jimmy and Marna hop the train in an attempt to elope. -- Wild and woolly. Jeff Hillington is the extremely naive son of a wealthy Eastern family who loves the old west so much that he virtually lives it in his room. When his father sends him to Arizona on business, Jeff expects it to be the place he read about in dime-store novels, and to appease him, the townsfolk put on a wild west show that turns real --
disc 3. Reaching for the moon. A daydreaming clerk discovers that he's of royal blood. -- A modern musketeer. Ned Thacker is born during a Kansas cyclone and is thus imbued with the spirit of adventure --
disc 4. When the clouds roll by. A wealthy young bachelor allows a pompous head-shrinker to influence his romantic pursuit of Greenwich Village artist Katherine Williams. -- The mollycoddle. A dandified American returns to his home in the wild west after being educated in England. --
disc 5. The nut. Charlie Jackson is a Greenwich Village character who invents Rube Goldberg-style contraptions. He uses them to please his friends and his sweetheart, Estrell Wynn, but more often than not, they backfire. -- The mark of Zorro. Don Diego de la Vega is the son of a wealthy Spanish Californian rancher. But he is also the dashing masked-and-caped Zorro who wages a one-man war to rescue his fellow citizens from the tyrannical Captain Juan Ramon
