Storyline

A party of tourists on their way east across the continent take advantage of the short stop at Albuquerque, New Mexico, to purchase wares of the Indians congregated about the Indian Exhibits Building near the station. They become so engrossed in the Indians and their handiwork that they do not notice the time slipping by and their train slipping out. Left, they decide to make the best of it by sight-seeing until the next train arrives. Their experience in the interim was funny, unique and exciting. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Basic one reel silent comedy
31 January 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Simple minded early comedy, which sustains itself with lots of movement and a little bit of Albuquerque local colour.

A group of tourists spend too long checking out the Indian Arts and Crafts at the station and miss their train. While waiting, Normand in a picture hat and black outfit, wanders off and takes an interest in Chief Evans, precipitating the usual chase, here by ax wielding Indian wives.

Shots of an Indian girl weaver and action moving towards camera are the most attention catching elements.

The excellent "Treasures of the West" transfer of a sharp original props up the historic interest.
