Pioneering stuntman Harvey Parry doubled for Harold Lloyd in several of the most dangerous shots in this and other Lloyd films; only after the death of Lloyd (who was always said to do his own stunts) did Parry "go public" about his involvement. See more »
A lovesick young man must NEVER WEAKEN when he unexpectedly finds himself in a most precarious & dangerous situation.
Here is one of Harold Lloyd's thrill pictures, which offers quick-moving comedy and genuine suspense. The first half of the film has Harold trying to roundup patients for his girlfriend's boss. The second half puts Harold up on the framework of a building under construction - clutching, crawling & careening out over empty space. His obvious athletic ability is made even more remarkable by the fact that he was using only half of his right hand, his disfigurement, caused by a studio accident, hidden by a glove.
Pretty Mildred Davis, who would soon become Mrs. Harold Lloyd, plays the object of his affections.
