This is a nice example of Mack Sennett's guerrilla movie making technique. Obviously the plot is improvised around the happening of Sennett's movie team stopping off at a Native American district in Albuquerque, Fresh Mexico. Trixie (Mabel Normand) is satisfied to search Native Americans selling baskets. She buys so many that they miss their train.Mable gets involved with the tribe's chief. His wife (Kate Toncray) is jealous and comes after Mabel with a tomahawk. Most of the movie is a chase after this. The editing is quite smooth. It shows that Sennett really had nothing more to learn from Griffith.This is a nice movie if you wish to see the pure joy of improvising a film on the spot. Mabel Normand could be given a lot of credit for her ability to do this so well.
This short can be found in the recently released DVD collection "Treasures of the West"---a collection of mostly short movies from the earliest days of films until 1938. According to the accompanying commentary track, the Biograph Company (owned by D.W. Griffith) would travel every year--filming part of the year in California and part of it back East. This movie was one of few made during the trip West and the team apparently stopped off in Albuquerque, Fresh Mexico for a several days. And, while Griffith was off filming some drama, Mack Sennett (also employed by Biograph) was off filming this comedy, "The Tourists".Unfortunately, "The Tourists" just has almost no plot. Even compared to the average Sennett movie of the day (which were often filmed off the cuff and with only storyline outlines), this one is plot-thin. A group of tourists miss their train and spend some time gawking at the Indian natives hanging about the railroad station. One of them, Trixie (Mabel Normand) starts flirting with the Chief and later all the ladies from the tribe start chasing her about--until she and her mates catch the next train and beat a hasty retreat.In addition to having almost no plot (and no laughs), the movie details many current Native Americans BUT like movies of the day, the Chief and his wife were now played by White actors wearing LOTS of dark makeup. An interesting curio but not a very nice comedy.
The Tourists (1912) ** 1/2 (out of 4) Mainly interesting as a curio, this Mack Sennett directed comedy has a group of white folks missing their train so they decide to take a look around at the Indians. Trixie (Mabel Normand) decides to begin touching up on Large Chief, which makes his wife and the another Indian girls angry. THE TOURIST lasts just six-minutes so there's not too much in term of plot and for a comedy there really aren't any laughs. What makes this movie so interesting to watch is that there were few true Indians that appear in the film. God knows if this was their first time seeing a film camera or not but there are some cute genuine moments to be seen here including the last sequence when the group of girls are cute much pushing the white folks away. Just take a look at the non-actors trying to mix in with the professional ones. It could go without telling but the professional actors testing the Indian parts are in create up and it's so obvious when the two are together. With that said, I thought Normand was in nice form as she was clearly meant for the screen as she floats around like a butterfly and her charm leaps off the screen.
