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.

Goofs

As the little boy closes the hood of the car, all of the tools slide into the engine compartment. Two shots later, as Harold cranks up the car, they're back on the open hood. See more »

Traffic Troubles With Mr. Lloyd
8 September 2003 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Hal Roach HAROLD LLOYD 2-Reeler.

A young man races across town in his beloved new Model T - occasionally having to GET OUT AND GET UNDER to repair it - to keep an appointment with his girlfriend.

Harold Lloyd is simply hilarious as the single-minded fellow who will go to any length to protect his Ford car, even giving it a shot of heroin at one point to keep its motor running. Of course, every indignity & frustration is heaped upon him as he makes his determined way towards his destination, making for some wonderful sight gags. As always, his athletic prowess is remarkable, especially considering this film was produced after the accident which cost him half of his right hand.

Mildred Davis, who would later marry Harold, plays his girlfriend. Sunshine Sammy Morrison, one of the earliest OUR GANG members, is very funny as the kid with the banana.

Vince Giordano and His Nighthawk Orchestra have supplied an excellent antique film score which perfectly complements Harold's antics on the screen.
