Lackluster Luke
30 June 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Harold Lloyd runs a movie theater, which is successfully drawing crowds for "The Iron Claw", a Pathé serial. With "Snub" Pollard employed as projectionist, things get understandably tangled up. Mr. Lloyd is expectedly distracted by irresistible female movie patrons, like Bebe Daniels. The film doesn't show any of "The Iron Claw"; instead, there are some crowd scenes. Mr. Pollard sleeps on the job, and somebody surely shouts "Fire!" Opportunities for inspired comedy are obviously missed, during the aptly titled "Luke's Movie Muddle".
