Two-Gun Gussie (1918) is a Harold Loyd western short comedy directed by Alfred J. Goulding.In this one Harold plays a mild-mannered young man who has left home and earns his living playing the piano in a saloon.The dangerous villain Dagger-Tooth Dan scares the local folks.Nobody's afraid of Harold.Except when the sheriff arrives with some letters he has received.Dan sees them and switches the information in them to make the sheriff think that the piano player is the dangerous one.Now Harold, starting to believe he really is dangerous, starts acting like one.Harry Pollard plays Snub the bartender, who doesn't get too much behind from Harold.Bebe Daniels is The Girl, who should have been seen more on screen.William Blaisdell is Dagger-Tooth while Charles Stevenson plays Whooping-Cough Charlie, the Sheriff.This is not the funniest of Harold Lloyd's short comedies, but it sure has got speed.Harold was an energetic young fellow who could move very rapidly from one scene to another.The ending in nice, where Harold accidentally fires his gun when Bebe is behind him.And then there's the little kiss.For us Harold Loyd fans this is a must-see.
