It Made More Sense In the Barrel
29 October 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A beat cop watches as half a dozen people come out of a barrel by a railroad siding. Last to emerge is Snub Pollard, who wanders over to Echo Park and finds out that things make less sense in this early solo outing.

Pollard's one-reelers were constructed by taking well-executed set-piece gags and linking them together with a sensible line of activity. Here the progression is not so clear and this lends it an absurd internal logic of its own, like a Tarrantino movie. Everyone gets a good gag or two, even Marie Mosquini, who is usually present simply to make people wonder why she is with Snub.

The well-executed gags are usually the reason to look at a Snub Pollard one-reeler, and there are some ones here, particularly the ones with the people jumping into the boats. Echo Park also offers some nice scenery, resulting in a good short comedy.
