South of the Border
5 June 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Snub stars in a better-than-usual effort -- which I credit largely to some funny titles and the direction of Charley Chase -- as a spy sent out to rescue Marie Mosquini -- looking even more fetching than usual in a mantilla -- in a South American country where earthquakes happen every few minutes: the cameraman jiggles the camera, and all the actors and bricks on screen fall down.

The gags are mostly based on these two premises and they form a fairly unified plot for a Snub Pollard movie. In addition, Snub gets to show some facial reactions instead of the usual deadpan way he was usually directed. This was the way he behaved through the 1930s, when he played this same blank-faced character as comic relief in a few western, believe it or not.
