This was probably a little late for Raoul Barre being involved. Although the chronology is murky, in this late Fox period, the bulk of the Mutt & Jeff cartoons were being produced by a company called Jefferson Film Corporation, headed up by Dick Friel, a former Barre-Bowers employee. Jefferson Film was owned by Joseph M. Schenck, of all people, putting M&J in the same family as the Talmadges and Buster Keaton. At the same time, Charley Bowers had a side deal making some of the films in his own small studio, so The Far North could have been made by either Jefferson or Bowers. I don't know if there is any easy way of telling who made it by looking at the film.
