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.

Good Harold Lloyd Comedy
12 October 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a good Harold Lloyd comedy that gets plenty of mileage out of the material, and it has quite a few amusing moments. It is one of many silent comedies that take one situation and then stretch it out as far as possible.

The top silent comedians such as Lloyd could often find quite a variety of possibilities in a simple premise.

In this case, most of the story has Harold in a desperate rush to get where he is going. The number of obstacles he encounters is pretty creative, from the expected, such as an uncooperative automobile, to unexpected obstacles such as a friendly little boy and a cute dog. There is some decent slapstick, and there are also some good sight gags, a couple of which might be the movie's best moments. It works pretty well overall.
