Pay Your Dues was one short more in keeping with Harold Lloyd's character
After seeing the not-so-appealing Lonesome Luke comedy short on the "American Slapstick" DVD, disc 3, the next Harold Lloyd one had his more familiar "glasses" character though he was just in development when Pay Your Dues was being made. In this one, he gets mixed in some lodge initiation when the previous contestant bails out. Since both are wearing handkerchiefs on their faces, the lodge members don't know which is which. There's also a woman who goes after Lloyd when she notices her "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" player disappears. Lots of funny sight gags abound here (including several that anticipate Lloyd's penchant for doing thrills) and there's a every-thing's-gonna-be-all right feel after the whole thing's over. So on that note, I highly recommend Pay Your Dues.
