Has Lots Of Imaginative Material
28 September 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Harold Lloyd two-reeler is well worth seeing for all of the imaginative material that it contains, ranging from romantic problems, future mother-in-law gags, and a morning-after sequence, to a ship full of female pirates. The technique has some rough edges much of the time, so that not everything works as well as it might have, but more than enough comes off to make it interesting and entertaining.

The story starts with Lloyd and Bebe Daniels having their engagement broken off by the tyrannical mother of Daniels's character. From there, it leads the characters (including Snub Pollard as Lloyd's valet), to the high seas, where they encounter some unpredictable and amusing adventures. Besides the creative scenario, there are some good individual gags, with one of the better ones being Lloyd on the phone listening to the mother-in-law as she chastises him for his faults.

The pirate ship sequence is set up as the centerpiece, and it gets pretty elaborate. There was enough material for a somewhat longer movie, which makes it seem a bit rushed at just over 20 minutes of screen time. But with Hal Roach in charge, Lloyd's unflagging energy, and Daniels as the love interest, there are many good moments.
