Decent early Lloyd
22 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Harold is in love with Bebe Daniels, but her father wants her to marry another. So to prevent her marrying Harold, he spirits her off to Bermuda but Harold stows away. When he is discovered, the film becomes a standard chase-type film. In the end, a totally unconvincing happy ending ensues.

Up until about the time this short was made, Harold Lloyd was in search of a persona. He had starred as "Lonesome Luke" and some other characters in early films, but in many ways they were a lot like a ripoff of Chaplin. Here, though, we see Lloyd with his trademark glasses, though his character doesn't exactly act the same way he did throughout the 1920s--being a little more brash. Still, despite this shortcoming and that the plot isn't particularly inspired, this is a decent little comedy and well worth a look if you are a fan of this comic genius. Even if you're not, it's still worth a peek.

By the way, this film features a rocking ship sequence that was VERY overdone (like Chaplin's THE IMMIGRANT). This just didn't seem to work very well and subtle it wasn't.
