Dancing On
24 May 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Harold Lloyd had been working at finding the right vehicles for himself. He had abandoned the bizarre costumes worn by most movie clowns in the 1910s in favor of of his glasses character. However, his comedy construction was still bone-breaking slapstick and his stories were little more than frames to hang the gags on.

It was in 1919, when he slowed down production a trifle that he began to catch his breath and to allow his natural charm to begin to shine through. In this one, he and Bebe are running away from her father, played by Bud Jamison and their car breaks down in front of a low dance hall where Snub Pollard is a waiter. And it is that dance hall that we finally begin to see the Harold Lloyd of the 1920s as he and Bebe are given medium close up reaction shots when things happen and as they step out on the dance floor -- apparently the two of them would go out dancing after production wrapped. There's a charm in the way they react to each other, instead of to the treatment-dictated script; and the way they suddenly break loose in defense of Bud Jamison makes perfect sense.

It's not a classic Harold Lloyd picture, but the sudden revelation of the elements that will make classic Lloyd pictures makes it very important.
