It's funny but seems very incomplete.
20 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film stars James Parrott--a guy who has unfortunately forgotten today. It's a shame, as he was a decent comedian and a great director for Hal Roach Studios (in particular, directing the likes of Laurel & Hardy). And, most would not know that he was the brother of the more famous comic, Charley Chase.

Unfortunately, while I enjoyed "The Uncovered Wagon" and laughed a few times, I also felt that much of it was missing. The end, in particular, seems to happen pretty much randomly. This is NOT uncommon, as older films were made on nitrate stock--which quickly degraded and even caught fire rather easily.

The film is about a VERY anachronistic group of pioneers heading west--in Model T Fords. The attacking Indians ride bikes and the whole things is funny and weird. Lots of nice sight gags and laughs....but it all abruptly ends and made little sense...but made me laugh.
