Storyline

Mrs. O'Brien is eager to be accepted as part of high society, and she is hosting a fox hunt as part of her plans. Her husband and daughter, though, have no interest in society affairs. Mrs. O'Brien wants to invite Lord Abernathy to the hunt, and she mentions this to the 'society pilot' who is advising her. But this woman and a confederate are merely using Mrs. O'Brien and the hunt for their own purposes. When Lord Abernathy is unavailable, they convince an ambitious young man to impersonate him, so that they can proceed with their scheme. Written by Snow Leopard

Harold Lloyd comedy with so-so results...
29 September 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that halfway through this comedy short, I had to stop viewing it, losing interest in the one-note plot.

Whatever interest there was may have improved as the film went on, but I never watched the fox hunt sequence after the first boring half that has Lloyd making various attempts to imitate an aristocrat when in reality he's a coat-check boy with high society aspirations. It's the sort of thing that has been done since by other comedians with much funnier results.

The joke wears thin after the first fifteen or twenty minutes and none of the humor was sufficiently amusing to make it reasonable to watch the whole thing. I'll have to give this one another chance next time it airs. It became too tiresome to stay tuned for the fox hunt which at least must have added some zip and pace to the slim story if it's as humorous as other commentators have indicated.

Other Lloyd silents were much better at sustaining interest throughout. This one gets off to a slow start and seems to stay there for too long a time.
