The version I found certainly was not 20 minutes long!
4 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Snub and his sweetie are heading to California to live. However, their trip pulling a long, long set of trailers is doomed to fail and many mishaps occur. Eventually, someone even steals their car and so the movie ends.

I was recently scanning a public domain film site (the one IMDb often links to) and found this Snub Pollard silent comedy. Being a HUGE silent comedy AND Snub fan, I had to download it! And, while I enjoyed it, imagine my surprised to see its running time listed as 20 minutes--and the film I watched was only about 6! Could IMDb be wrong? Maybe, but the version I saw did seem a bit truncated. Plus, in the days of silents, it was not uncommon for theater owners to cut the films themselves or perhaps the rest was too degraded and was lost--a common occurrence with old films on nitrate stock.

As far as what's in the movie, it's a nice pleasant little film. It's far from Snub's best (that would probably "It's a Gift") and lacks the wild and goofy humor of some slapstick comedy, but still is quite enjoyable and worth seeing if you are a nut for silent comedies--like me.
