There is a lot more that Hal Roach could have done with this Lonesome Luke character. We're not seeing him marginalized enough. Chaplin had the right blend of comedy and pathos, documenting his own experiences as an outsider. This is where Lonesome Luke fails. He's imitating an outsider, but in fact, Luke is as much an insider as Lloyd is.
