Pleasant, If Not Great
24 May 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Harold Lloyd was still settling into his Glasses character at the time this one was made and after a short introduction as a greengrocer with a few jokes on that subject, he winds up substituting for a portrait photographer who has insulted Bebe Daniels and whose husband, Bud Jamison, is seeking revenge.

The gags are still very violent at this stage in the Glasses character's evolution, but they are fairly amusing and brilliantly timed. I have some issues with the screen titles, which are more pun-concerned than usual. Also, Snub Pollard, although given his customary credit, doesn't have much of a role. This one is about Harold and the others are supporting players.
