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
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.
