Captain Kidd's Kids (1919)

** (out of 4)

Lesser Harold Lloyd comedy has him playing The Boy whose lovely girlfriend (Bebe Daniels) is taken away by her mother. The mother forces her to the Canary Islands so The Boy follows and eventually dreams that the mother is a pirate and he must save his love. CAPTAIN KIDD'S KIDS has a nice title but that's pretty much it and in the end this here is certainly one of the weaker shorts from Lloyd. There are a few decent moments scattered throughout this two-reeler but just not enough to keep the thing entertaining throughout its 20-minutes. I think the best sequence happens early on and involves 'Snub' Pollard falling into a large bathtub and then having to have the water drained from him. The second half of the story takes place on a boat where we get your typical sea sick jokes as well as the pirate stuff once it happens. I really didn't find anything in the second act to be funny and even that typical Lloyd slapstick is missing. Both Lloyd and Daniels have been much better in other roles so neither one really gets to shine here. Pollard has a couple good scenes and Helen Gilmore is good as the wicked mother.
