Comedian Eddie Cantor made two silent films before become a star.  In this, his second silent, he plays a clumsy mailman who is in love with Madge the waitress and struggling against three rivals, including a policemen, a fireman, and a shady promoter. Although Eddie loses out on a chance to escort Madge to the postal ball, he still attends and impresses when his wild pirouettes win him the grand prize in the Black Bottom dance contest. When he discovers that one of his rivals is con man, he exposes the villians and finally wins Madge’s love. Special Delivery was directed by comedian Fatty Arbuckle, under the pseudonym "William Goodrich," who was unsuccessfully trying to make a comeback after the sex scandal that ruined his career.
