Harold Lloyd and Mildred Davis
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Now that Bebe Daniels had made her transition from short films to feature films with Cecil B. DeMille in 'Why Change Your Wife?', Harold Lloyd had to find a replacement in Mildred Davis. In 'From Hand to Mouth', Mildred makes her debut in Harold Lloyd short films, and begins a life long partnership.
