A Nicely Shot and Edited Comic Improversation.
16 November 2012 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great example of Mack Sennett's guerrilla film making technique. Obviously the plot is improvised around the event of Sennett's film crew stopping off at a Native American district in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Trixie (Mabel Normand) is happy to find Native Americans selling baskets. She buys so many that they miss their train.

Mable gets involved with the tribe's chief. His wife (Kate Toncray) is jealous and comes after Mabel with a tomahawk. Most of the film is a chase after this. The editing is quite smooth. It shows that Sennett really had nothing more to learn from Griffith.

This is a good film if you want to see the pure joy of improvising a movie on the spot. Mabel Normand should be given a lot of credit for her ability to do this so well.
