Innocuous and pointless, 16 June 2002
Author: boblipton from New York City

It is interesting to look at the talent involved in this half-reel movie -- Hal Roach behind the camera, Harold Lloyd, Bebe Daniels and Snub Pollard in front of it -- and think: Well. Miss Daniels has been in the movies six years at this point. She's the veteran. She was 15 at the time this was released.

Lloyd was doing Lonesome Luke at this point, one of the many Chaplin imitators of the period, and he was making an effort to be somewhat different. Chaplin was short and his clothes were too big. Lloyd was tall and his clothes were too small. When it comes down to it, however, this movie, despite a good set-up, is simply not terribly interesting. If you wish to see everything any of these four people did -- and they later did some excellent work -- then see it. Otherwise, avoid it.
