Storyline

Horace jumps in a caravan car covered with a large tarp, only to discover that a band of hooded rebels are hidden under the canopy. He fights first with the gang's leader, then all join in. He manages to escape with the leader's kimono. He jumps on a mule as the gang pursues by car. Horace gets a dose of courage when he realizes that a young woman on horseback is watching. He captures the gang with a nifty bit of roping, and she holds her rifle on them. He's performed an heroic deed in front of her. Is it enough? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ignore the score on this one--I only included it because IMDb forces reviews to give a score. That's because this film is considered lost and only a fragment exists today. It is included as an extra on Disk 1 of the DVD set "Harry Langdon: Lost and Found" and many of the films have recently been reassembled after years of being in fragments.

Sadly, only about 2 1/2 minutes of HORACE GREELEY, JR. remains. What I saw was missing its context and I'll just describe what I saw. Harry's riding along when a black robed guy attacks him. This man and others who soon join in look like Klansmen but are garbed in black. Harry responds to the attack, not with comedy but by becoming an action hero of sorts and manages to capture the entire gang and the movie ends.

So it seems like the stirring conclusion is there but all the laughs are missing as is the reason for all this action. If the rest of this film is ever discovered, drop me a line--I'm dying to know exactly what happened.
