Max Is Stuck Up (1910)Short, Comedy · 31 December 1910
Max is invited to a dinner party. On his way he stops at the baker's to secure a few choice confections, and while there steps on a piece of sticky fly-paper. With great solicitude the baker asks Max to sit down while he removes the offending bit of paper. This Max does, but unfortunately deposits himself upon a similar piece of paper which is on the chair. This, too, is removed by the now excited baker, but Max manages to carry off with him a nice large sticky piece fastened on his sleeve. This he discovers at his sweetheart's home and in endeavoring to remove it, he gets it fastened to both hands and both feet. Nobody but a contortionist could ever get rid of those terrible pieces of paper, and to add to Max's misery, when he gets to the table he finds that having picked up his fork he cannot get loose of it. His glass, too, sticks to his hands and when his future father-in-law passes him a platter, Max cannot let loose and the entire party gets embroiled over who shall have the platter.
