I don't think I could have seen the full version of this Max Linder comedy. The film I found on YouTube was only 4 minutes long - a short running time, even for 1910. I've seen some of this forgotten comic pioneer's other early movies, and have to say that the quality of the comedy is variable to say the least, ranging from truly hilarious to completely lacking in laughs. This one, in which - believe it or not - Max decides to go skiing, comes somewhere near the lower end of that spectrum. Apart from the first scene, in which we see Max, still in his hotel room, putting on his skis and then having difficulty getting through the door, the film is mostly a sequence of snowy pratfalls.
