Not a crash and burn, but didn't love it
25 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Keystone comedy film is notable for containing early appearances by Charley Chase and Harold Lloyd, and to make it easier to identify them, Charley plays a character called Harold. It's not part of the series of Keystone films from this time that co-starred Chase and Mae Busch, but it still uses him as a general light comic romantic lead. He doesn't get very much to do, but he does stand out from the crowd for those who are looking: there is a great moment where he enthusiastically waves goodbye to his sweetheart while being fought off by the obligatory angry, disapproving father.

There is a lot of plotting of a robbery in the first half of the film, then the second half primarily relies on the concept of a male robber disguised as a woman (who, of course, is flirted with a bit) and the tension that results from the threat of his discovery. There's only so far this goes, but then the film is topped off by a typically elaborate Keystone Cops chase, which is well executed.

Harold Lloyd is unrecognizable in a couple shots as a fruit vendor whose stand keeps getting knocked over. It's a fair example of a prototypical 1910s Keystone one-reeler, but not the funniest of them.
