Nice silent one-reeler about a man (Harold Lloyd) who takes a job inside a department store because he finds one of the workers (Bebe Daniels) to be cute. Before long he's not only trying to sale shoes but he also has to deal with some kidnappers. NEXT AISLE OVER is another decent short from this part of Lloyd's career where slapstick was certainly his thing. This film here clocks in at just under 10-minutes and while it's certainly not a classic there are enough funny parts to make it worth watching. One of the best sequences deals with 'Snub' Pollard carrying a large number of items for his wife and being unable to get into a swinging door. Another funny sequence deals with Lloyd trying to put shoes on the sock-less man. Once the kidnapping scheme comes into play we're given a terrific sequence where Lloyd, in the window like a mannequin, starts hitting up on the three kidnappers who keep thinking one of their own is doing it. Lloyd is once again flawless in the role as his comic timing is really on the mark. Daniels is her sweet self as usual and Pollard is very funny in his scenes. Several of the Rolin Films troop are on hand here.
