Did You Know?


The title, "Get Out and Get Under," comes from a popular 1913 song, "He'd Have To Get Under - Get Out And Get Under (To Fix Up His Automobile)" (Music by Maurice Abrahams; Lyrics by Grant Clarke and Edgar Leslie). Robert Israel's score in the 2004 alternate version frequently uses melodies from this song. See more »

Get Out and Get Under is an excellent Harold Lloyd short from Hal Roach
31 July 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Get Out and Get Under is Harold Lloyd's first film after an exploding accident that caused him to lose a two fingers and a thumb in one of his hands requiring him to wear a prosthetic glove in movies for the rest of his career. This is a very funny short in which Harold is hurrying to get to the theatre for his performance. Lots of hilarious scenes concerning ways to fix his car, his dealings with a kid (Ernie "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison of the original Our Gang) who keeps hanging around while he's working, a dog, some engineers of a train ferry the car accidentally goes on, a parade, a banana peel (no surprise there), a steep hill, a water tower, a fire hydrant, a "road closed" sign, and some motorcycle cops. His leading lady is played by his eventual wife, Mildred Davis. Produced and directed by comedy mastermind Hal Roach. The music I heard in this version was provided by Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks Orchestra. Highly essential viewing for silent movie comedy fans especially those of Harold Lloyd.
