Tenderfoot
12 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Long before Hal Roach teamed him with Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel was a pretty good silent screen comic. West Of Hot Dog is a good example as to how he honed his comic persona to what we know from his days as a part of a team.

Stanley is a tenderfoot traveling west to claim an inheritance and it's a considerable bit of cash and real estate including a saloon that's a favorite watering hole for a gang of outlaws. And guess who the other claimants in the will are? None other than the outlaws whom we see holding up the stagecoach that Stanley is on and giving him a taste of the west.

West Of Hot Dog has a bit of Laurel&Hardy's Way Out West, Abbott&Costello's The Wistful Widow Of Wagon Gap and Bob Hope's The Paleface. The short subject has spawned some even better successors, but this one is pretty good as well and shows Laurel as a great solo act comedian.
