Harold Lloyd and Chaplin were the two top comics at the boxoffice in the early days of silent movies and Lloyd here pulls together a very funny movie that gets him to show his athletic prowess and comic ingenuity. Lloyd shows up to meet a girl he hasn't seen in years but she is the guardian of a girl whom she brings along. There is only two tickets for three and Lloyd and the little girl have to dodge the train conductor while caring for a little child which puts his mental acumen to task. Set-pieces include a popular one of Lloyd riding on top of the train, Lloyd at the bottom of a train as he tails a hobo who stole his money; Lloyd in a bathroom with a very funny scene involving shaving cream etc Emotional resonance is low but laughs are truly aplenty the more I think of it, the more I laugh as I type. That is a high compliment.
