Storyline

In a snowy Alpine district Max takes his first lessons in the art of skiing. He leaves the hotel with his skis fixed to his shoes, and his efforts and contortions to get through the door of his room are absurdly ludicrous. Finally he manages to get out and we see him making frantic efforts to maintain his equilibrium on the fairly gentle slope. Max is plucky, and in spite of numerous falls, sticks to his purpose, although his attitudes and the knots in which he ties himself are excruciatingly funny. Finally we find him making his first leap; it is not exactly successful, and in the last scene the unhappy novice appears to be endeavoring to escape from the snowballs that the children of the village are pelting him with.

Max Goes Skiing
26 January 2012 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

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.
