There doesn't seem to be any opportunity for the 26 year old Harold Lloyd to soar professionally in his career in this short film. Whether he is abroad or at home, the themes are the same. There is a force of antagonism preventing him from reaching his full potential, and he does appear to be incapable of shaping the world he lives in. He is a prisoner of his own existence, and it is this misfortune that affords us entry into his humanity. Harold Lloyd and Bebe Daniels are the Adam and Eve of silent comedy. The themes that they possess in their short films together underpins the frustration of the human spirit when parameters have been set to limit progress.
