Storyline

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

Smith's San Francisco Adventure
28 September 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Always on the lookout for something new, Mack Sennett said let there be a family series with a large dog and lo! There was the Smith Family starring Raymond McKee as the father, Ruth Hiatt as the mother, three year old Mary Ann Jackson as the child and Omar the Dog as the dog. It was all very good casting and the presence of Carole Lombard in this, the fourteenth of the series, adds to the fun. Ever wonder where she got such good comedy chops? Working for Sennett.

The Smith family visits San Francisco and then takes an ocean trip where everyone gets mildly seasick and the eponymous pony shows up. In fact, all of the Smith Family movies are mild, at least by the rugged standards of Sennett's studio. Australian Alf Goulding directs a series of gags that never get much rougher than a shot of people leaning over the rail of a ship in this comedy of middle-class foibles.
