A Boy and His Car
23 May 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Rich papa is trying to marry off daughter Bebe and who should show up among the usual wealth seekers but Harold Lloyd in morning clothes?

As with many of the early "glasses" shorts, the jokes are hard-knock slapstick; Harold bests his competition by whacking them on the head with a croquet mallet. Nonetheless, this one is a bit more interesting than most because we see signs of the coming gags -- Harold's old car is a source of pride for him, leading to a longstanding tradition at the Roach studios of some great auto gags.

Lloyd's style would not really take off for another couple of years, until he was working in two-reelers and venturing into three-reelers. One-reel comedies like this did not permit enough character exposition to foster Lloyd's eccentric but believable style of comedy. Still, on its own terms, it is a successful farce.
