Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the BBC2 versions of the repackaged Harold Lloyd shorts, this film is much more interesting to watch. It has a commentary during the story as well as incidental jazz music in the background. It's like Chaplin's re-issue of 'The Gold Rush' in 1941 with commentary.
