Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Horse Shoes wasn't quite as spectacular as Monty Banks' previous comedy Play Safe, but it still packed plenty of laughs into its tight six reels. This time the dapper, diminutive Banks gets involved with the horsey set, leading to plenty of slapstick shenanigans at the racetrack. The story wraps up in a courtroom, with Banks performing some eye-popping athletics while pleading his case. An earlier sequence, in which Banks tries to sleep in an upper berth, only to find that his travelling companion is a strange young woman, was singled out for critical praise. Horse Shoes was directed by Clyde Bruckman, a frequent contributor to the films of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd.
