No, Not Laurel and Hardy

Lige Conley was a slapstick comedian so obscure that most of his filmed efforts are not listed on the IMDb. Bouncing from one studio to another, he turned out a number of fair, if unoriginal comedies (the most generally available of which is FAST AND FURIOUS), disappeared from in front of the camera about 1930 and became a gag writer for Fox, dying at the age of 40 in 1937.

In this effort he looks a lot like Chaplin, only shorter. Because he is a wastrel, his father ships him off to become a Mountie and he executes a fair number of gags decently.

He is ably assisted in this by Spencer Bell, an Afro-American film comedian of the era who worked a lot but who often had to hide behind such charming pseudonyms as "G. Howe Black". Here he gets a fair number of gags himself as Conley's chauffeur/assistant and none of the usual stereotype gags get attached to his role.

The best gags involve Lige's horse, who has to contend with snowshoes and skis. The expression on his face is resigned: "Gee, I'll bet Tony -- Tom Mix' horse -- doesn't have to put up with this sort of stuff."
