Storyline

A young New Yorker is the bane of his Christian parent's existence because of his constant carousing and partying at all hours. As such, his father decides to send the young man to live at ranch of his uncle in Piute Pass in the wild west to get him away from the New York temptations that lead to this unwanted behavior. Before he even gets to the ranch, the young man gets into one misadventure after another using his New York sensibilities in Piute Pass. His primary misadventure involves a sweet young ingénue, the two who fall for each other at first sight. Her father is being held captive by "Tiger Lip" Tompkins, who owns half the county and bullies the rest with his band called the Masked Angels. The ransom is her womanly favors to him. The young man tries to help free the father so that the young man and the ingénue can live happily ever after together, which does not sit well with Tiger Lip and the Masked Angels. Written by Huggo

Sound, not great, not bad, with good chase scene
23 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Before I start, I have to complain about the person who has put up that Harold Lloyd mini-biography on all the comments about his movie. It does not attempt to review the movie, maybe the it hasn't seen it but what is so monotonous is that the bio is the same one. Frustrating by all means. Anyway to the movie which is light on its feet and uses a dramatic set-up which has few laughs to get the up-to-no-good big city boy who ends up in the country where this situational comedy takes ground. Harold always billed as "the boy" meets "the girl" as they were all billed and this comic oater takes off as Harold has to battle the bad guys which ends with a furious chase to a train as the girl tries to defend him. Not great Lloyd but you could do worse.
