Trivia

In an early close-up in the photography studio, you can really see the damage Lloyd suffered to his face in the prop bomb explosion that occurred at the Witzel Studio on 14 August 1919. His face would eventually heal, but he lost the thumb and forefinger of right hand and he adopted the use of a prosthetic rubber glove (which looked unnaturally stiff) for the remainder of his film career.

Get Out And Get Under (Hal Roach, 1920) **1/2
2 January 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Fair Harold Lloyd short which presents several gags he would re-use and improve upon in his later feature films. It opens with a scene at a photographer's studio where Harold discovers that his girl Mildred Davis is about to marry another man - but it all turns out to have been just a dream. He's involved in amateur theatricals and, being late for a performance, rushes out to the venue in his beloved car: amid the vehicle's breaking down on him, he falls foul of an elderly neighbor and a colored child; the race-against-time, then, culminates in the usual pursuit by a horde of policemen. The automobile trouble eventually gets a bit repetitive, but the film nevertheless includes the occasional inspired and hilarious gag - such as when Harold 'disappears' inside the car's engine compartment, an actor accidentally falling off the stage (after being 'killed') promptly going back up to resume his performance i.e. affecting a typically melodramatic 'exit' and, especially, when Lloyd sees a junkie getting high in the street and reasons that, if he injects his vehicle with the same substance, it will be likewise revitalized - which is what happens, as the car goes off on its own soon after 'taking' its fix!
