A Comedy With No Laughs
Chase Yourself (1926)

** (out of 4)

Flat Western spoof has a female gaining control of a ranch after the death of her father. Her crew refuses to listen to her or do their work so she fires them but when they refuse to leave the land they're forced off by a man they think is the legendary Two-Gun Joe. It turns out its just a tramp (Jimmie Adams) so the tough guys come back to teach him a lesson. Adams would go onto do some Hal Roach comedies but judging by this film calling him a comedian would be a tad bit of a stretch. To be fair the screenplay is incredibly weak and there simply aren't any good jokes so it's probably unfair to judge the actor just by this one film. The biggest problem is certainly the screenplay that really doesn't have anything fresh or original going for it. The mistaken identity is never played for any laughs and the various issues that the tramp gets involved in aren't funny either. Some of the jokes are rather simple like him messing up on his new job as a ranch hand but again, it's not funny. The ending has the tough guys coming back to push him around and this is where we get into more physical humor but once again it's simply not funny. At 13-minutes the film moves along well enough but at the same time there's no real reason to watch it.
