A very good Snub Pollard short. Snub has always been a problematic comedian for me, since he looks so weird and was always teamed up with Marie Mosquini as his love interest.... it makes you wonder why Lon Chaney never got the girl or Marie didn't talk him into going to a barber. Snub also seemed to not have much of a personality, tailor-made for being a supporting comic and, indeed, some of his best shorts involved very elaborate gags.
But not this one, and it works well enough, when Snub rides the rails into town with that delightful scene stealer, 'Sunshine Sammy' Morrisson, and they try to get something to eat, preferably at Marie's diner. A simple, believable thesis and one that director Charley Chase knows how to fill out the story and insert the lovely gags into the structure.
