A Few Minutes' Rest
12 April 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Snub Pollard has been out walking all morning and sits down in a quiet alley for a few minutes rest.... and by the time it is over, being chased up a tree by a bear.

Snub's short subjects for Hal Roach were matters of pure comedy construction, getting from one impeccably performed gag to another. Snub himself was a pure clown and eventually his style of short subject found no home at Roach, where comedy ruled, but only when supported by character. However this is a fine example of the pure slapstick style for the era.

For many years it was considered lost, but there are a lot of cans of unidentified films at the Library of Congress. Every once in a while they drag in maniacs who spend their time reading old newspaper clippings and censor reports, and they identified this one. Undercrank Productions put it on a DVD with a dozen others for FOUND AT MOSTLY LOST.
