Jimmy and Mabel Smith and their infant daughter Bubbles are visiting San Francisco. After getting off the boat, their first stop is a Chinatown restaurant, where they and by association their fellow restaurant customers get into a few misadventures with the noodle dishes. The next stop is the horse show, where they get into more hijinx, first because of their dog Cap who is the size of a horse. But the biggest trouble may be specifically for Jimmy, as he wants to indulge Bubbles by buying her a pony, and doesn't want her or Mabel to know about it until they get back to Los Angeles. Overhearing Jimmy's conversation with the pony dealer, the beautiful Lillian Saunders, about the purchase, Mabel mistakenly believes that Jimmy is planning on running off with Lillian. That belief makes getting the pony home on the ship all that much more difficult for Jimmy. Written by Huggo

A chance for an early glimpse of Carole Lombard as a riding instructor--as well as seeing a nifty little comedy.
27 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Smith's Pony" is a sweet little domestic comedy from Mack Sennett. It stars Raymond McKee as the father, Ruth Hiatt as the mother and young Mary Ann Jackson as 'Baby' (though she appears a bit old for this). If you watch a lot of old films, you may just recognize Jackson, as she'd later appear in a bunch of Our Gang comedies. However, less well known today are these Smith Family films and she and the rest of the cast made quite a few--as they were rather popular. And, if the rest are like "Smith's Pony", they sure should have been.

The film begins with the Smiths visiting San Francisco. A variety of silly things occur there (such as Baby mixing rubber bands into lo mein at a Chinese restaurant) but the highlight was the family's trip to the races. There, Baby wanted a horse of her own and Dad decided to get her one. He meets with a cute lady (Carole Lombard) and she sneaks a pony onto the boat that the family is taking home from the vacation. However, through a variety of mix-ups, Mother thinks that Dad is seeing another woman. After all, just who is this 'Lillian'. Lillian, of course, is the baby horse.

The film has lots of wonderful gags that work well. I think this is mostly because the emphasis is more on making a genial domestic comedy that pushing too hard for cheap laughs. Very sweet and well worth a look--especially so you can see Jackson and Carole Lombard in these early roles.
