Amusing Version of a Familiar Idea
15 November 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This amusing short comedy is not bad, and it is at least a decent version of a familiar idea that has been used in similar form by many comics. It also shows Harold Lloyd as the kind of character that he was soon to develop further in the years just ahead.

The story has a western setting, and it starts with the local sheriff confusing Lloyd, who plays a mild-mannered piano player, with a tough criminal who has just arrived in town. The idea was probably a little less shopworn in 1918 than it would be now, and it furnishes more than enough material for a one-reeler.

Lloyd gets decent mileage out of the material, and while some of it is predictable, there are a couple of good gags as well, and there is always a good energy level. Snub Pollard gets a couple of good moments, and he looks as if he is enjoying himself. Bebe Daniels is also in the cast, but unfortunately her role is rather limited. Overall, a decent short comedy, and certainly one of the more efficient versions of the idea.
