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

Good Combination of Slapstick & Satire
4 October 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Harold Lloyd comedy has a good combination of slapstick and satire. It also features Lloyd experimenting with Chaplin-style material, as his character impersonates an English lord as part of a parody on the idle rich. On the production end, Fred C. Newmeyer, Hal Roach, and Sam Taylor put together a good story with plenty of laughs and a good pace.

After the other main characters have been introduced, Lloyd's character makes a clever entrance. He plays the kind of eager-to-succeed young man that he later went on to portray in some of his finest full-length movies, and this character is brought into the world of a family run by an equally ambitious matriarch. There is nothing subtle about the characters, and the amusing title cards also add some extra sarcasm to the portrayal of the upper classes.

Although this is the kind of setup that Chaplin was particularly known for, Lloyd and company give it a different feel that works well. The story moves smoothly from one zany situation to the next, and there is a good combination of comedy material, with sight gags blended together with the slapstick and with Lloyd's occasional feats of athleticism. It makes for an enjoyable movie that gives Lloyd plenty of material to work with.
