| There hijinks at the hat check when Lonesome Luke's in charge
Another rare Lonesome Luke not quite complete (missing the last few seconds, but it doesn't matter to the plot) Just like other Luke's, this one is full of action and slapstick. It was a great to see Snub Pollard move with extraordinary limberness especially when he is dancing with the chorus girls. There's a great bit of comedy when Luke is checking in (and checking out) a lady and declares that she is not dressed properly for their establishment. He then takes a brush and paints on an elaborate back on her backless dress and she is allowed in. George Eastman House has a fair quality 35mm print that they are restoring the titles to as of 2008.
