Unrefined But Mostly Entertaining Harold Lloyd Comedy
28 September 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Although unrefined, and made before Harold Lloyd had settled into the screen persona that suited him best, this is still a generally amusing short comedy. In most respects it is similar to many other comedies of its time, combining some knockabout slapstick with identity mix-ups and romantic problems. Lloyd could do this material as well as almost anyone, and he gives his usual energetic performance.

The story has Lloyd's character in love with a young woman played by Bebe Daniels, whose father is intent on having her marry a Professor. Lloyd and Daniels always made a good screen couple, and they seem quite natural together. That helps a lot in keeping things going despite the sillier stretches, the overdone puns in the character names, the less successful slapstick, and the like. Daniels makes good use of small gestures and expressions in defining her character's relationship with Harold.

It's good to see many of Lloyd's movies, even the less outstanding ones, finally coming out on good-quality releases. This one is not especially memorable, but it's a mostly entertaining comedy that also showed some indications of what he would do later on.
