History

Excuse My Dust is a surviving 1920 American silent comedy drama film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed by Paramount Pictures. It is based upon a Saturday Evening Post short story "The Bear Trap" by Byron Morgan. Sam Wood directed Wallace Reid. Reid's young son, Wallace Jr., makes his first screen appearance here. This film is preserved in the Library of Congress.

As described in a film magazine, "Toodles" Walton (Reid), former automobile racer, has promised his wife Dorothy (Little) that he will refrain from speeding. But he gives into temptation and, through the influence of his father-in-law Mr. Ward (Roberts), the judge deprives him of the right to pilot a car for six months. Troubled times follow Toodles. He nearly runs over and kills his child, his wife leaves him, and his father-in-law's automobile business, of which he is manager, is being plotted against by its competitors. An automobile race from Los Angeles to San Francisco is planned by the competitors in hope of obtaining the plans of Ward's new motor. A midnight auto race, a collision, and an exciting finish puts Toodles in San Francisco, where his child is ill. The competing company fails in its scheme and Toodles' wife forgives him.
