Great Twist in Charming Film
4 June 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

A Gasoline Wedding (1918)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A group of men show up to the house of a rich man who is trying to marry off his beautiful daughter (Bebe Daniels). The father hopes to con her into marrying a rich man but The Boy (Harold Lloyd) shows up to win her hand. Of course, he's as broke as can be. A GASOLINE WEDDING features some nice laughs, a terrific twist at the end and it's certainly worth watching by silent buffs or fans of Lloyd. I thought the film started off pretty good as we see a wide range of men showing up to impress the young lady and then we get Lloyd entering the picture and even having to play a funny joke to get inside. The fighting that Lloyd does to get the girl was quite funny but so was the twist at the end, which I won't spoil here. It's certainly not what some people are going to expect and the line of dialogue that follows is just priceless and perfectly pulled off. Lloyd, Daniels and 'Snub' Pollard are all in fine form and especially the two leads. There's no question that Lloyd and Daniels had some real chemistry together and they come across very charming here.
