Storyline

As a group of traveling players are about to arrive at the opera house where they have their next engagement, the manager of the house is in the process of venting his frustrations with his crew. Harold, one of the stage hands, takes a liking to one of the dancers, and he willingly helps her with her baggage - until he realizes that one of her props is a live snake, which causes turmoil when he allows it to get loose. Then, when the show begins, Harold ends up causing further disruptions. Written by Snow Leopard

Harold Lloyd on stage

Harold Lloyd is a stage hand surrounded by true thespians.He has more interest on just one of them, the leading lady.Ring Up the Curtain (1919) is directed by Alfred J. Goulding.It's brought to you by the Hal Roach studios, or Rolin Film Company as it was known then.Harold Lloyd gives once again a funny performance with those glasses.Bebe Daniels makes a wonderful leading lady.'Snub' Pollard makes a terrific leading man.This short comedy has a lot of fun stuff.The snake gag is quite hilarious.The snake on the loose moves from one hand to other, getting them scared for their lives.And Harold interrupting 'Snub' on stage, when he's having a romantic scene with Bebe is quite funny.From the early Harold Loyd films this is really amusing.
