It says here this is a serious story about how Rex the Wonder Horse saves grizzled old prospector James Finlayson's life, mine and stepdaughter -- the stepdaughter is played by Barbara Kent with perfectly plucked and drawn eyebrows -- from two baddies, Theodore von Eltz and Oliver Hardy, in perfectly serious bad guy characterizations.
Yeah. Sure. Miss Kent seems to be channeling Mabel Normand's performance in MICKEY, and it's clear Hardy thinks he's playing the comic sidekick and, although he is playing a bad guy, he does get in the occasional gag. And Finn gets his moment of comedy, too, as he watches the baddies play a game of checkers to see who gets to kill him and who gets his mine and stepdaughter.
Still, given that the hero of the story is Rex the Wonder Horse, who has his own girlfriend and his own comic sidekicks -- played by some burros -- how serious do you think any of these people were? Rex' career ended after half a dozen movies in 1929 -- I suppose his voice wasn't suitable to the talkies and he went into the pet food business. That's the movie business for you.
