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
Coat-room checker O'Reilly becomes part of high society.That's because Mrs. O'Brien wants to be a member of the society and she hosts a fox hunt.She wants to invite Lord Abernathy and she mentions this to the society pilot.But this woman and her confederate have a scheme in mind so they turn this young man into the lord.Among Those Present (1921) is a Harold Lloyd three-reeler.It's directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and the writers are Hal Roach and Sam Taylor.Lloyd is as funny as always in the lead.The lovely Mildred Davis plays Miss O'Brien.James T. Kelley is her father while Aggie Herring portrays the mother.Vera White plays Society Pilot and William Gillespie is Hard-Boiled Party.There are plenty of hilarious moments in this short.One funny sequence is when Harold lies about his hunting experiences.Or when he rides Dynamite.That's a bad-tempered horse.And it's a riot when Harold loses his pants.Lloyd has done it again!
