Nice Harold Lloyd Short

Sammy in Siberia, A (1919)

*** (out of 4)

Set during the Russian Revolution, this film has Harold Lloyd playing an American soldier who gets taken to a cabin where a Russian beauty (Bebe Daniels) expects him to defeat the Red Coats trying to break in. Having a film set during this period of Western history isn't normal and as many other reviews have pointed out, I'm not certainly how many others even attempted. This short was released by Unknown Video and there's even an intro talking about the strange circumstances to set the picture. With that said, fans of Lloyd will certainly want to check this out. Why he doesn't give the type of Lloyd performance that he's best known for, I thought the energy given was still enough to make this worth viewing. The film runs just around 7-minutes so you really shouldn't be expecting any type of major plot. What we've got are a few cute jokes including one where Lloyd gets separated from the other troops and ends up getting chased by a tree by a dog. Another funny gag has him taking a nip of alcohol and it nearly turning him made. The film was obviously shot on a set but I thought the exteriors of the cabin were quite good. Lloyd and Daniels have some nice chemistry together and at such a short running time there's enough laughs to make it worth viewing.
