This is a very short Harold Lloyd short picture--only 13 minutes long. But, considering this it does pack a lot into it! The pace is fast, the gags very good and Lloyd is at his best.
Harold wants to ask a man for his daughter's hand in marriage. However, this father is a very important business owner and getting into the office is next to impossible--everyone wants to see him and his employees literally thrown everyone out who tries! Undaunted, the marriage-minded Lloyd will not give up and comes back again and again and again until he can ask the man for her hand. Several of the attempts in particular are very clever (such as the trap door). Finally, after nearly getting himself killed repeatedly, he gets to the man--only to find out the girl just eloped with another guy!
Look for Snub Pollard, another great silent comedian, as the boss' #1 assistant. Apart from starring in his own shorts, he appeared in several of Lloyd's as well.
